Event Details

As part of our event fundraising and community involvement efforts, Herald Harbor Citizen’s Association presents “Fight Like A Girl,” a one-day course, offered by Annapolis Security and Defense, to bring safety and awareness to all women whether they are heading off to school, joining the workforce or just want to learn to defend themselves in a worst-case scenario.

Sometimes all you have are hands and feet, arms and legs. In the event you find yourself unarmed and confronted, you will have a tool set that can allow you to defend yourself. These basic techniques will empower you to fight through it and persevere. Fights can happen in the blink of an eye. We will cover the introductory skills necessary to escape or end a fight.

Topics covered:

  • Defensive mindset
  • Defensive postures and movements
  • Maintaining your guard
  • Basic punches
  • Basic kicks
  • Basic blocking
  • Basic elbow strikes
  • Basic knee strikes

Methods of instruction:

  • Classroom Instruction
  • Instructor demonstrations
  • Practice with striking pads/heavy bags
  • Practice with a partner

This is a Women-Only, program that will cover unarmed defensive concepts.

The course will take place on Saturday, September 14 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., and is divided into three portions: a classroom portion discusses possible dangers women will or could face; a practical portion, which teaches basic strikes, knees, elbows and heel strikes. There will also be a discussion and demonstration and practice of striking do’s and don’ts, grips and escapes and weak/strong points. The program ends with a review.

All females 6th grade and over are invited to attend and observe. Those participating in the physical portion must sign a waiver. Please note that the participants in the physical portion will punch, strike, kick and tumble.All others are welcome to observe. Attendees are not required to participate in the physical portion and are encouraged to support all participants!
