Tip of the day

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.
