Harborfields Public Library – Women’s self-defense class (to prevent rape, assault, and abduction)

This women’s self-defense workshop was performed on Tuesday, August 13th, at the Harborfields Public Library in Greenlawn NY by Grand Master Gene Perceval.

Teen/Tween Stranger Awareness – Self-Defense Class – Hewlett NY

Location:
Hewlett-Woodmere Public Library

Date & Time:
December 2nd, 7-8pm.

Program description:
Cost for this event is free. This teen/tween class is about teaching young people two major topics: stranger awareness, and self-defense techniques to escape from them.

We present social situations in the form of live skits, using participants in the class and ask them to behave as they normally would given the social situation at hand (using custom built styrofoam props: a bus, car, a 6 foot house, etc…). We then have the particpant(s) reenact the situation live as if it were really happening to them being approached by a stranger (which is a performer from the event).

The following are the main topics we cover in the class:

1) how to be better aware of your surroundings and the dangers around you in knowing social situations where perpetrators might approach you and try to do harm to you or abduct you, and

2) how to use various self-defense techniques to avoid harm or abduction.

The social scenes we teach include: when someone in a car asks a young person for directions, being approached on the street, when a deliver person knocks on your door, and when strangers approach while children are at play outside. We teach basic awareness of these situations as well as hands-on self-defense techniques to escape from strangers who may grab ahold of a child in these situations.
