Escaping Violent Encounters (EVE) for Women

EVE photoThis course gives women the tools to recognize a developing threat of assault, to deflect it if possible, to escape if practical, and to defend if necessary. While other “feel-good” classes may be appealing, these systems fail conclusively in the real world. The inevitable failure of the unrealistic training system puts lives and emotional well-being in danger. This nonviolent system of prevention and avoidance takes a realistic approach to the subject. (Because this class is self-supporting, no tuition waivers or exemptions are allowed.) For more information visit dt4ems.com. 8 hours. $52
