We had the pleasure of hosting a self-defense class organized by STDL for their members.

During the class, participants learned the basics of self-defense and situational awareness.

We also discussed the importance of daily stretching and breathing to maintain flexibility, agility, and mental health.

The sensei provided tips and exercises to do at home, making the class both fun and informative. Everyone seemed to have enjoyed it!
