Class Experience

This class is taught in English.
Learn the importance of: Upper Level Protection against strikes and grabs, Lower Level Protection against kicks, Push Protection, Tackle Protection, Mount Protection, Front Choke Protection, Rear Choke Protection, Front Grab Protection, Rear Grab Protection, Restraint Protection from grabs, Guard Protection from the ground, and Throw Protection. Note: Korean terminology is used to create a special learning environment. Learners will be using basic terminologies and counting and Korean on a regular basis. They love it!
I hold Master Instructor Certifications in WONJIN Hapkido and Taekwondo as well as an International Instructor Certification in Haidong Gumdo (a 1700 year old sword art). 
I am a certified Verbal Defense Instructor and have trained elementary, middle school, junior high and high school kids in public and charter school anti-bullying programs. I own a professional dojang (Korean for dojo) and train Master Instructors from other systems and schools in Life Defense. 
Peace Warrior candidates should practice their breathing, and form (curriculum practice) 7-10 minutes per day, and come to each session ready to report their use of Life Defense principles in their life. Example: "When I got nervous I 'BREATHED' and calmed down." 7-10 minutes of practice week days is required. 
A black (white is optional) uniform top is required for this session, and certification, uniform tops and belts are encouraged to be worn and may be purchased from Purchase a student, karate, black, traditional top and their rank belt (to be worn after testing). Belts should be 1 size larger than their uniform size. Having at least a 6' X 6' area clear of furniture is preferred. 
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Testing is required for this course. Achievement of belt ranking is available for those desiring to continue training to build confidence and commitment. 
1 hour 20 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
Although Life Defense is purely defensive, and no fighting or sparring is required, the subject matter is being safe, and reference will be made to attackers, and simple, age appropriate scenarios of defense. Safety and Life Defense is our goal. Also, make sure you have a practice space big enough, and remove obstacles that could cause a hazard. It's a good idea to hydrate before, and after and do some jumping jacks just before class to warm up.
Uniforms are required for participation in Basic sections as follows: Black, karate style top, student weight uniforms are available at although any comparable uniform supplier is acceptable (note: white uniforms are acceptable). Rank belts should be purchased for Orange and Purple belt test promotions.
