YMCA to Host Free Women’s Self-Defense Class

FREMONT – The Fremont Family YMCA will host a unique, single class self-defense seminar, geared to women and girls who want to empower themselves to avoid and survive potentially dangerous encounters

S.A.F.E. (Surviving A Fighting Encounter) – is a program designed to educate women on competent and effective ways to avoid, and if necessary, survive a life threatening encounter. Many women’s self-defense programs provide rigid and strict rules which prohibit the naturalness and individuality of the student – both of which are necessary for unhesitant response during an actual incident. The S.A.F.E program is different, in that it responds to each individual’s abilities and natural instincts.

Through the S.A.F.E. program, students will learn the basic survival tools needed to defend themselves, including self defense devices, distractions and weapons. Students
will also learn techniques to decrease their chances of an attack and avoid dangerous encounters.

The class will be taught by Jim Rosenbach, owner of Rosenbach Warrior Training Branches. Jim received his PHD in Martial Arts Philosophy from the University of Asian Martial Arts Studies. Master Rosenbach has been inducted into the USA Martial Arts Hall of Fame and has been training and teaching Martial Arts for over 40 years. Jim offers realistic self defense and Martial Arts classes to the general public, in a safe and family
oriented environment, through the organization known as R.W.T.B.

The S.A.F.E. class will be held at the Fremont Family YMCA this Tuesday, October 15th, from 6 to 7:30PM, and is FREE to all women and girls. Participants need not be YMCA members to attend.
