LEAF RIVER, Ill. — Gallowglass Academy will offer a four-hour self-defense class for women at Leaf River’s River Valley Complex, 605 S. Main St., Leaf River, Ill.
Trained instructors Andrea Dubnick and Allen Reed will present some real-life, easy-to-learn ways to avoid a bad situation, to defuse an escalating situation, and to escape grabs, holds and strikes.
No martial arts experience or athletic ability is required.
“We will work with any woman over age 14, although we ask that a parent or legal guardian accompany women under 18,” said Dubnick. “Be sure to wear comfortable workout clothes or street-wear.”
