Residents enjoyed a self-defense workshop last week Thursday. Participants were able to learn a variety of self-defense techniques such as Shaolin Kung Fu, Taekwondo & Tai Chi. The event began with a progressive 10 minute group warm-up in which participants assisted the instructor by leading stretches and jumping jacks. Once the participants were fully warmed up, the instructor restated the purpose for the class and began teaching the self defense lesson. Altogether, attendees learned punching, blocking, body positioning, ground defense & safety information.
