Self defense class


  • Do you know what to do if someone grabs you and you are unsafe?
  • Would you like to be empowered and learn how to react and protect yourself and possibly others in hostile situations?
  • Would you like to learn how to respond from trained professionals?

Given the reality of aggressive and violent events that can occur, GSL Church is offering a one-day self-defense course This is a unique seminar and training presented by highly experienced professionals including law enforcement officers.  

The course is a combination of lecture and scenarios where participants are taught to be more aware of their surroundings, learn how to navigate dangerous situations, and deescalate confrontations. Facilitators will teach different techniques and demonstrate how to defend oneself in and escape from circumstances. 

When & Where: Saturday, June 10, 8 a.m.-12:30 p.m.
