Self Defense for Women

with Gilbert (Gil) Doughty


Class has begun

Did you know that most street assaults last less than 15 seconds? If your life is in danger, you'll need to strike hard and fast, 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 situational awareness and understanding how to deal with potential dangers. All students will receive a Kubotan safety device and the knowledge to use it.

Required: Proof of registration. Wear loose-fitting clothing and comfortable shoes.

Sensei Gil Doughty began practicing martial arts in the 1970s. 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.
