be investing at the end of session 2.

The man in the street does not know a star in the sky, the solstice he does not observe; the equinox
he knows as little; and the whole bright calendar of the year is without a dial in his mind.”

Self-Defense for Men and Women
This course is appropriate for those who have no martial arts experience and want to learn basic
and simple self-defense techniques, or for a person with martial arts experience who would like to
enhance their abilities in self-defense. The martial arts style taught is jujutsu which is translated as
the “Gentle Art.” A person’s inner strength is used to apply self-defense techniques rather that
physical strength or force. For this reason, jujutsu is appropriate for all. A typical class involves
stretching exercises, discussion and demonstration of basic self-defense techniques against one or
more attackers in various situations, and the opportunity to practice these techniques in a friendly,
non-threatening atmosphere. An awareness of how to protect oneself in real-life situations is
emphasized. After the basic eight week program, interested students can continue with their
training and earn rank through a local jujutsu school. The course instructor has more that 30 years
experience in the martial arts and is a member of Jujitsu America and the Hakko Ryu Martial Arts
Federation.
