Kubotan Self Defense Class for Women
December 13, 2014 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am$10
CLASS IS FULL! ANY RSVP’s FROM THIS POINT FORWARD WILL BE PUT ON A WAITING LIST…
Learn how to defend yourself using a device called a “kubotan” that you can carry with you as part of your key chain.
The kubotan was developed as a tool for police officers to restrain suspects without causing permanent injury. Its popularity grew in the mid-1970s when Kubota brought the weapon to the attention of the LAPD and began training female officers in its application. It is often touted as extremely effective in breaking the will of unruly suspects with painful locks and pressure point strikes. Because of that the Kubotan is also sometimes dubbed the ‘instrument of attitude adjustment’. In some law enforcement and security circles it is known as ‘The Persuader’.
The class will be taught by Santa Cruz Deputy Chief, Steve Clark.
Although this class if being held and announced as a class for women, everyone is invited. The $10 covers a continental breakfast and the kubotan itself which you get to take home. You MUST RSVP as space and seating is limited. Email your RSVP to [email protected] and you will receive confirmation and information on how and where to pay the $10 fee.
