Self Defense for Women

with Gilbert (Gil) Doughty


Did you know that most street assaults last less than 15 seconds? If your life is in danger, you'll need to strike fast, strike hard and answer questions later.

Learn to defend against larger and stronger attackers. Street survival tactics utilize deflecting, striking, kicking, trapping and disabling. Self-defense includes being aware of your surroundings and reading and understanding how to deal with potentially dangerous situations.

All students will receive a kubotan safety device and the knowledge to use it. Wear loose-fitting clothing and comfortable shoes. Proof of registration required.

Sensei Gil Doughty began practicing martial arts in the 70s. He has trained with Maine Karate Association founder Sensei Reggie Groff, Master Seung Ook Choi of Choi's Kickboxing and Tae Kwon Do, and Sensei Bruce Cross & Master Steve DeMasco of Villari's Shaolin Kempo.
