Self Defense: MIND & BODY
 Instructor: Peter Greig
Part 1: MIND
Peter will help you identify and change habits that may put you in danger, teach you to project “unapproachable” to avoid confrontation, and demonstrate simple ways to de-escalate potential threats. You will develop an effective HISS and a fierce GROWL. Content will be specific to safety in and around Breathe Pilates Place, but the techniques are universal. Any comfortable clothing is suitable.

Part 2: BODY
Learn and practice physical skills to quickly and effectively remove yourself from dangerous situations. Peter will help you develop a powerful BITE and teach you when, where, and how to place it. Part 2 will be held at Southern Maryland Aikido Center in Waldorf, MD. Wear clothes you can move in.
