Emergency Preparedness Tip of the Week--
Do you know self defense? I am forever grateful that I took a Tae Kwon Do class when I was a teen and learned basic self defense. I still have a pretty mean jump kick to prove it! ;) Because I am a social worker, I’ve heard first hand, heart wrenching stories which have reinforced for me the importance of self defense training. Contact your local YMCA to see if they offer a self defense class. If they aren’t aware of any in your area, locate a karate dojo to see if they offer them. Another place to check is the local women’s shelter. Many offer classes on self defense as a resource to the community.
