Three-Part Series will Focus on Assault Prevention
A three-part series on assault prevention will be held in July, August and September at Schlow Centre Region Library in State College.
The schedule for the hour-long sessions is as follows:
- Part I, “The Fence,” at 1:30 p.m. on July 28
- Part II, “The Equalizer,” at 1:30 p.m. on Aug. 25
- Part III, “The Ground,” at 1:30 p.m. on Sept. 29
The sessions are hosted by Ryan Gruhn, owner and head instructor at Central PA Mixed Martial Arts. They are appropriate for adults of all ages, and teenagers with parental consent.
A variety of concepts will be covered, such as establishing boundaries and knowing how to keep someone at bay; learning how to put up a “fence” to keep potential threats at a comfortable distance; and using body language, voice and surroundings to get out of the way of potential threats and prevent an impending assault.
The sessions are free. Space is limited. To register, visit Schlow’s second floor reference desk, email firstname.lastname@example.org, or call (814) 235-7816. For more information on Central PA Mixed Martial Arts, visit www.cpamma.com.
