Kodokan Boston also teaches periodic self-defense seminars. These seminars are very different from our ongoing martial arts classes. They focus primarily on the social and environmental elements of self defense, teaching ways to recognize, avoid, and escape violence. While we do cover simple and effective physical techniques, the seminars focus more on understanding violence- why, where, and how it happens, what you can do to prevent it from happening to you, and how to get away if it does.
Our self defense classes are often designed for a specific group. We have taught a number of women’s self defense classes in the Boston area, and have also taught specifically for teenage boys. If you would like more information, or are interested in a self defense workshop, please feel free to contact us. The seminars are offered periodically in our dojo, and by arrangement at other suitable locations.
