Women’s Self Defense Class

On Sunday, March 23 from 1 – 4 p.m. in conference rooms A and B, Paul Dukatz, owner of Dukatz’s Academy of Martial Arts of West Bend, will be teaching a women’s self defense class.

The class is offered for women ages 13 years and older and costs $15 per person. It will cover different scenarios of potential attacks and require participants to execute striking techniques with hands, knees and elbows.

In the lesson, Paul will teach the proper use of pepper spray. Pepper spray will be available for purchase to any participant 18 years and older at the end of the seminar for $15.00. Participants should wear loose clothing or gym clothes to the class.

Paul Dukatz is a fourth degree Black Belt and has been teaching Martial Arts for more than 20 years, covering many seminars. His knowledge of hand-to-hand combat, weapons use and defense against weapons is ideal and easy to learn for people who don’t study martial arts on a regular basis.

You can register online here or call Affinity Nurse Direct at 800-362-9900. Please register by Saturday, March 22.
