Defend Yourself: Center Offers Unique Self-Defense Classes to Women

Posted: Updated:
LANSING, Mich. - Self defense and self protection are an important priority for women. Assault on women is a common crime because assailants assume women will be more passive and not fight back. The best way for women to fight back against crime is to prevent it from happening by avoiding being alone or being in badly lit areas. However, getting into such situations is sometimes inevitable.

Lansing's Spartan Krav Maga is bringing a self-defense system created based upon the street fighting skills of Hungarian-Israeli martial artist Imi Lichtenfeld. 

The basic principle of Krav Maga is inflicting maximum damage to the opponent in order to end the fight as quickly as possible. Brutal counter-attacks using your most effective tool (knees, elbows, weapons, etc.) to target your opponent’s weakest area (neck, throat, eyes, knees, ribs, solar plexus, groin, etc.) are the focus. 

Spartan Krav Maga is offering a self-defense class to Mid-Michigan women on Sunday, April 27th. The class will take place from 1pm to 4pm at the Hannah Community Center.
