From press release
Elite Defense Systems (EDS) of Rockford will offer “Kicking Santa with a Twist” through Dec. 23. The program’s goal is to encourage everyone to share the Christmas spirit by giving a toy to the school. In exchange for gifts priced between $10 and $20, the giver will be entitled to a month of free lessons at EDS worth $109.
EDS has partnered with the Angel Tree for this program, and toys accumulated will be donated to children whose main caregivers are incarcerated.
Reports indicate that crime rates increase significantly during the weeks before and after Christmas. Hence, it is believed that knowledge on how to avoid being victims in such crimes is the best gift possible.
EDS is at 5695 Strathmoor Drive, Unit 2, Rockford. It was established in 1995 by Sifu Matt Numrich. Numrich is a certified full instructor of Jeet Kune Do and the Filipino Martial Arts by Sifu Paul Vunak (instructor for the Navy SEALS). At present, the school offers competitive and reality-based classes specifically designed for men, women and youth.
For more information, contact Numrich at matt@EliteJKD.com or (630) 837-7565.
