RJM Strategy Group, a local leader in law enforcement, safety and security for business owners and residents, hosts Real World Self-Defense, a workshop for adults to learn and self-defense skills to protect themselves in domestic violence or street situations. It is specially designed for adults of all ages with little or no self defense knowledge or experience.
The workshop will be held from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. on Sunday, March 20 in North Central College’s second floor wrestling room, located inside the Merner Fieldhouse at 450 S. Brainard Street. Registration for the event will begin at 10:45 a.m.
The investigation will be led by retired police officers Ray McGury and Chuck May, who together bring 60 years of law enforcement experience. Additionally, May is a second-degree black belt with experience in self-defense and teaching Krav Maga.
“With the prevalence of domestic violence and street crime, adults of all ages should be trained in how to protect themselves,” May explained in a written statement. “In our workshop, we emphasize the critical nature of situational awareness, help participants identify threats, and show them how to evade threatening situations or physical attacks. Our participants leave our workshops with increased confidence and skills they can use immediately.
Training workshop for adults, from 18 years old
The training workshop, aimed at adults 18 and older, will include 30 minutes of instruction on situational awareness and the prevention of confrontations and assaults. The final 90 minutes will teach participants basic self-defense techniques. Both male and female instructors will be on hand to assist participants. Participants should come dressed for a light cardio workout.
(Please note that since this workout will take place in the wrestling room, participants will need to remove their shoes since the floor is a padded wrestling surface/mat.)
