Self-Defense Hike (SOLD OUT)

  • Greenwood Ashworth Park 4500 Grand Avenue Des Moines, IA, 50312 United States (map)

This event is sold out.

Join us for a self-defense class taught by Jessica Peterson Tierny, founder of the Women’s Self Defense Initiative . Jessica will be leading us in a two hour self-defense course. This basic class will teach you all the tactics and techniques needed to win a possible life and death confrontation against an attacker.

You will learn about the mindset of predators, situational awareness, verbal and physical assertiveness skills, the combat mindset and working through fear.  And, of course, you'll learn lots of physical self-defense techniques that are easy to learn, easy to use, and easy to remember!  

After the class we will go on a relaxing 2.5 mile hike on the Greenwood Ashworth trails.

Healthy snacks and beverages will be provided.
