Tampa Martial Arts Dojo Launches Woman-Oriented Self-Defense Seminar Series

Florida Aikido Center to Kick-off its New Self-Defense Seminar Series for Women this Saturday, September 17th.

PRLog - Sep. 13, 2011 - TAMPA, Fla. -- This Saturday, September 17th, Florida Aikido Center (http://www.flaikidocenter.com) will launch a series of monthly, two-hour seminars designed to address the practical self-defense needs of women of all ages. The seminars cost $30 per class/per person or $160 for the full seven-month series (special group rates are available) and will be held from 12:30 to 2:30pm at the Florida Aikido Center’s 2,000-sq/ft facility just north of the Hillsborough Community College Dale Mabry campus in Tampa.  

The seminar series is aimed at providing women with a small but reliable arsenal of basic, easy-to-execute defense techniques that can be used in a variety of situations. While each individual class is self-contained and can be taken as such, the entire seminar series spans seven-months (one class per month) and covers a broader range of topics. Subjects to be covered include how to counter grabs, chokes and strikes; escaping multiple attackers; defense from a prone position; situational awareness; using improvised weapons; defending against simple weapons, and measured use of force.

According to Gina Boccolucci, the headmaster at Florida Aikido Center and one of the co-instructors for the self-defense seminar series, “When we began putting together this self-defense course, we took some of the most simple and effective techniques from Aikido, Karate and other styles, then put them into a format for non-martial artists that want to be able to escape or overcome an attacker that is very likely larger, stronger and more aggressive.”

Bryce Smith, the other co-instructor for the course, followed-up by saying, “I think it’s important for those interested in attending to know this isn't a martial arts class in the sense that most people think of one – no uniform, no rigid stances, no body conditioning, no ceremony. We’re going to do some serious work, but we’re also going to approach this course with a degree of humor and hopefully everyone that attends comes away with a very positive experience.”

The self-defense seminar series schedule is as follows:
Sep 17, 2011; Oct 15, 2011; Nov 18, 2011; Dec 10, 2011; Jan 21, 2012; Feb 18, 2012; Mar 24, 2012
