Self Defense Classes
Introduction to Self Defense Class for Adults: Weds. March 13th 6-730pm FREE
We will be hosting a FREE Introduction to Self Defense Class for both students and non-students in March. Santa Cruz has had a spike in violent crimes lately and Laird’s Academy want to do all that we can to help make people feel safe again. Pre-registration is required and class size will be limited. If all the spaces fill up, we will offer a second chance to take this class, time and date to be announced.
Intermediate Self Defense for Adults: Weds. April 10th 6-7:30pm $30
This life saving course teaches physical moves that use technique over power from a variety of situations. This is a hands on class that requires participants to be able to perform physical self defense moves and learn some safe falling techniques.
Advanced Self Defense for Adults: Weds. April 17th 6-7:30pm $30
Taking it a step even further, this class teaches more advanced defense against a full physical attack, including chokes, punches and ground defense. We will also teach some strategies against weapons.
