Self Defense Workshop for Women at Cypress Church:

Are you at risk? Is your daughter? If someone came up to you – behind, on the side of, or directly in front of you – with the intent to physically harm you, do you know how to protect yourself?

Females, in particular, are increasingly the targets of attacks and often feel defenseless, mainly because they don’t know how to defend themselves. Cypress Church is offering a “Self Defense Workshop for Women” this Saturday, April 5th from 10 a.m. to 12 Noon at 6143 Ball Road, Cypress, CA.

This “Self Defense Workshop for Women” is geared for women of all ages and stages of life – high school age and above – to learn how to assess, prevent and defend themselves in real life situations. Participants will be shown and trained in techniques including physical attacks and weapons defense. It’s better to be prepared than to wish you were!

The cost is only $10 per person for this two hour workshop. Please be dressed in clothing that allows movement and in appropriate footwear.

The instructor is T.J. Peterson. T.J. has studied Martial Arts for over 7 years and has been an instructor for the past 4. He has taken classes in weapons training and sparring, as well as rape prevention and psychology of predators in order to effectively train and teach women’s and kid’s self defense for real-world application.

T.J. is both dedicated and personable, with goals of making sure his students are well prepared, as well as making the classes enjoyable. For more information, contact T.J. at Terrell.J.Peterson@gmail.com.
