The Eastside Y is offering a self defense clinic for females ages 12 and up. This clinic, run by Rachel Cheesman from Street Smart Self Defense Academy, consists of 2 hours of training. It’s basically a no-nonsense approach on how to develop a “command presence”, along with basic self defense skills for girls ages 12 and up. This course is based on how to handle your fear with the use of adrenalin. We achieve this objective through various role play scenarios and full contact training with a padded assailant.
