The bi-annual free women’s self-defense workshop led by Professor Nick Chamberlain. Participants will learn techniques to avoid dangerous situations, fend off potential assailants and general self-defense methods and mentalities. Within the workshop attendees can ‘Break a Board for a Buck’ where they are taught how to break a wooden plank with their bare hand; each ‘buck’ benefits a local women’s shelter. And a Dallas Police Department representative will be present with safety tips and a Q&A session for all.

A simultaneous free kid’s stranger danger workshop (ages 4+) led by trained professionals is offered on the 2nd floor gym of the Lakewood dojo which includes martial arts exercises, engaging games and ‘stranger danger’ lessons. A Dallas Police Department representative will be present with safety tips and a Q&A for all.

Attendees are not required but encouraged to wear comfortable/fitness attire and to bring a donation of cash or everyday household items to benefit a local women’s shelter. Those interested in participating can call 214.351.5367 or email info@dallaskenpo.com for more information.
