Open to women aged 18 and up, the seminar offers a unique blend of classroom instruction and physical training, ensuring participants are well-prepared to defend themselves in various situations.

What sets this self-defense seminar apart is its comprehensive approach. The program begins with a classroom setting where instructors cover theoretical aspects of self-defense, including situational awareness, de-escalation techniques, and legal considerations.

“Instructors will go ahead and teach the participants how to get out of certain physical situations,” explained an Edinburg PD representative. This hands-on training aims to build confidence and competence in handling potential threats.

Program Details

The self-defense classes are set to commence on Monday, July 1st, and will be held at the Edinburg training facility. The program spans three days, providing an intensive and immersive experience for all attendees. Women interested in participating are encouraged to call (956) 318-8840 to sign up for the seminar.

Participants are advised to wear comfortable clothing and footwear to facilitate ease of movement during the physical training sessions. The seminar promises to be an empowering experience, equipping women with the tools they need to protect themselves.

Community Response

The initiative has been met with enthusiasm from the local community. Many see it as a valuable opportunity for women to gain practical self-defense skills in a supportive and educational environment. “This seminar is a great way for women to learn how to protect themselves and feel more secure in their daily lives,” commented a local resident.
