Re: Women Personal Safety and Self-Defense: 2 Hrs Crash Course Gold

I was attacked near my home in August. http://bazonline.ch/basel/stadt/Verm...story/17211500 Just a few days later, Swiss Crime Statistics were published http://www.swissinfo.ch/eng/swiss_ne...l?cid=31019266

I'm not one to sit around and feel sorry. Everything happens for a reason. So, I decided to take a Personal Safety class. Problem is, I couldn't find one in English! After some searching, I found a local martial arts instructor who is willing to offer a women's personal safety course in ENGLISH. He has lots of experience as a police officer, body guard, etc.

I took the first course in October and learned a lot about keeping myself safe, Swiss law, and what to do during and after a confrontation. I strongly recommend Damian and this course.

Hi Cara, I am sorry to hear about your experience. I am interested in the course - could I just check though - it's listed for Friday 11th, but details are for Sunday 13th - I'm assuming the latter is correct?

Hi! Just back from another appointment with the Basel Police.

OK, when I posted the event, it had been scheduled for Friday.

The date was changed to Sunday to accommodate people who work or go to school. So the new date is Sunday the 13th.

Will have a go at correcting the entry.

Thanks!

Re: Women Personal Safety and Self-Defense: 2 Hrs Crash Course Gold

Thanks Cara - I hope Damian will still run the course if take up is low, but I am doing what I can to bump the numbers up. I was attacked myself many years ago, also in a "safe" town. I used to think I could handle myself, and did on that occasion, though it was nasty and could have been much worse, but I am a lot older and slower now. Also I don't feel as confident here that I can read the signs, so it will be good to get that perspective.

Damian has contacted me to cancel the course as not enough people have signed up.
