Concerned about your personal safety? This 12-hour class reinforces your self-confidence and provides practice in self-protection techniques, including:

  • The foundations of self-protection: Alertness, awareness, & avoidance
  • Use of the voice; use of common objects as weapons
  • Basic strikes: hammer blow, heel of hand, elbow blows
  • Basic kicks: front, side, rear
  • Escapes from common attacks: chokes, bear hugs, hair pulls
  • Defending yourself on the ground or against a wall
  • How to deal with an attacker who has a weapon
  • Securing your home
  • Staying safe on the street, in your car, home, or workplace

The full season is on the main page > season. Meh for the most part, but it does have the long awaited (by me, hahahaha) L'amour de Loin, which on a couple of Saturdays is paired with Salome.

The Tristan und Isolde looks interesting, I like Rusalka, Werther and Cyrano de Bergerac, the rest is Top 40 stuff I have no interest in .

The full season of self-defense classes, you mean? I suspect you wanted this on a different post. :)

Remember that the Met season is total magic compared to SFO, also.
