Street Wise Self-Defense Seminar @ MCC on 10/19

CCOP is working with the Metropolitan Community Church to present a community Self-Defense Seminar at the church on Saturday October 19 from 1pm to 5pm.

Many people in the community are concerned with rising crime and increasing reports of people being assaulted for their smart phones and valuables.  A little more awareness, and some forethought about what your options are when faced with a difficult situation can make all the difference, and this self-defense seminar will offer some invaluable information and insights.

The seminar will cover important topics such as:

  • Self-defense versus defending yourself
