Ladies, we know you are busy running errands and taking care of the kids; but when you are bringing in the groceries, are you paying attention to your surroundings? How would you protect yourself and your kids if you become thretatened?

The Farmington Hills/Farmington Emergency Preparedness Commission (EPC) and the Farmington Family YMCA will present a women’s self defense seminar.

Over one thousand women have participated in the EPC’s popular self-defense seminars, which have been presented ten times during the past six years. The class will be taught by Jeff Duncan, master instructor and sixth degree black belt. Through a series of close-range drills, women will learn both situational awareness and self-defense skills.

The self-defense seminar is open to all women ages 11 and up. An $8 dollar registration fee will cover class supplies and also a tax deductible donation to be shared by HAVEN, an Oakland County crisis and counseling center for victims of domestic violence, and the Farmington Family YMCA’s youth and family programs.

Advance registration is required. If financial help is needed with the seminar fee, please mention this at the check-in table prior to the event. To register, call 248-473-1800.
