In this 3 week course, participants will learn some basic ways to handle everyday situations that have the potential to turn violent. It is not unrealistic to be in a situation where you have to control a scenario involving a family member or friend that has escalated out of hand.   This course looks to bridge that gap and address what happens in a situation when reasonable force is needed.  A potentially dangerous situation where injuring one of the parties is not necessary, but some level of physical component is likely to be utilized.  Conflict resolution skills will be taught in the form of de-escalation strategies, avoidance, restraining and controlling techniques. Adults 18 and over are welcome to attend. No prior martial arts experience necessary.
