I went yesterday and participated in the free women's self defense class. When I first walked in I was nervous because I don't do anything like this so I was stepping out of my comfort zone but it was so worth it. They teach you so much and are very helpful. Being that it was free, there were maybe at least 30 of us. I didn't count but the entire room was filled with women. Yet the instructor Sifu Jack was really helpful and made sure he gave each one of us some advice and help with what we were doing wrong and what we can do to make it better. Left the studio feeling awesome and looking forward to the next class. Definitely will buy the T-shirt they sell since the class is free, its the least you can do since they are giving up their free time to help us learn how to defend ourselves.
