NOVEMBER 5 • SUNDAY
50% OF EVENT PROCEEDS TO BENEFIT ANGELS COMMUNITY SERVICES OF JOLIET
BOLINGBROOK–With the continued rise in personal assault, carjackings and other crimes, it is critical to be prepared to protect and defend yourself from attacks at home, school, the workplace and elsewhere. The Krav Gym, located in Bolingbrook, is teaming up with Naperville-based RJM Strategy Group to host a Women’s Self-Defense Seminar on Sunday, November 5 from 11:30-1:30 pm. Registration for this hands-on workshop is in progress.
Fifty percent of the event’s proceeds will benefit Guardian Angels Community Services of Joliet. This organization’s mission is “to empower people to improve the quality of their lives.”
This training event, which is being offered again by popular demand, will be led by head self-defense instructor Michael Jozwiak of The Krav Gym and Ray McGury of RJM Strategy Group, a local leader in law enforcement, safety and security for business owners and residents. It is especially designed for adults of all ages with little to no self-defense knowledge or experience. Will County State’s Attorney Jim Glasgow will also be in attendance to introduce the training workshop and address the attendees.
The 2-hour workshop will cover the following aspects of self-defense:
• Situational awareness
• Proper mindset for safety in combat
• Mental and physical effects in combat
• Major principles of protection
• Threat assessment
• How to identify potential attackers
• Soft and hard skills
• Weapons of opportunity
Additionally, since the session will be highly interactive, participants are encouraged to come with questions to ask the instructors who are prepared to provide practical advice, step-by-step guidance, and plenty of encouragement to refine the hands-on techniques covered.
The Krav Gym, located at 485 W. Boughton Rd. in Bolingbrook, will host the training. The fee is $25/person; all participants must sign a waiver prior to the start of the training; check-in begins at 11:00 am.
