Ten No Kishi Dojo sponsors Marc MacYoung, self-defense expert, for a weekend of No Nonsense Self-Defense!
In the Sweet Medicine SunDance Path, development of physical skill and mastery, including the ability to care for one’s own safety, is one of the significant aspects of self-growth. In the process of developing our physical abilities, we learn an incredible amount about ourselves. Through his practical approach to awareness and self-defense, Marc will give us plenty of opportunities to learn in this way!
Join us for:
- Personal Protection / Crime Avoidance talk – Friday evening, A look at how to non-violently foil a criminal’s attempts, followed by Q&A with Marc.
- Martial Mechanics/Force Physics – Saturday. Learn how to use your body effectively.
Marc says, “This seminar’s drills and techniques are not based on muscle. It’s training along the lines of a quote from Helio Gracie, ‘Train as if you are an old man because one day you will be.’ This kind of power doesn’t fade with age, like muscle and endurance. The older you get, the better you get.”
- Knife Seminar – Sunday. Get an understanding how knives are used, and why people get stabbed; learn about the effects of adrenalin on perception and how it will make you ‘walk into (a blade) weed whacker’ ; look at the different kinds of violence and why your response is not ‘fighting’; develop skill and get information you can access easily even in a live-fire situation.
Limited to 30 participants. Early registration discounts available.
