Self Defense Classes


Parks and Recreation to offer two self-defense classes.

Parks and Recreation will be offering two self-defense classes for women this fall. Both classes will take place at the Apache Junction Multi-Generational Center located at 1035 N. Idaho Road. Anyone can learn self-defense; no previous experience is necessary for either of these classes.

Practical Self-Defense for Women will be offered on Tuesday, Oct. 15, and Tuesday, Nov. 19, from 6-8 p.m. Learn how to defend yourself in a practical and safe manner with various methods of self-defense using common everyday items found in your house, purse or car…even using your hands and feet!

Instructor Norman Orr has been a martial artist for over 50 years and has an assortment of martial arts experience to draw on including Kung-Fu, Tae-Kwon-Do and Tai Chi. He has taught self-defense classes to many women’s groups, including women’s shelters, corporate settings and small offices as well as to police and fire departments.

Details about these programs can be found in our Fall Citizen brochure.
