Urban School of Self-Defense

120 W. 7th St. Long Beach, CA 90813

Instructor: Shihan Zahalea Anderson

Description: For this workshop, we have been so lucky to team up with the Urban School of Self-Defense, located right in the heart of downtown LB. Shihan Zahalea Anderson, owner and operator of the Dojo, has designed a special workshop to express the importance of self-protection for women, concentrating on how to trust your inner voice, and instinct for survival! With the Urban School of Self-Defense, you can be prepared to protect your most valuable asset, your life. Taught for women by a woman.

You will learn:

-day to day survival skills to help defend yourself in various life threatening scenarios

-how to stay safe on the streets

-breathing techniques, stretching & meditation

-if you sometimes wear high heels, bring a pair and learn a few techniques as well!

Please wear comfortable clothing you can move around in, such as gym clothes. No shoes will be worn on the matt. You can be barefoot, or wear socks please. Bring a reusable water bottle you can refill.

All ages and abilities are welcome. Children are welcome as long as they are accompanied and supervised by an adult/guardian.  Workshop is open to the public.

At the beginning of the workshop, we will share a brief introduction to the LB Time Exchange and a chance for participants to share and learn about each others’ skills and gifts.

For timebank members, cost of the workshop is 2 time credits.
