Self Defense

Champion Youth Outreach in partnership with the Recreation and Parks Department offers classes to teach children about self-defense.

The course is to teach self-defense with the emphasis on child safety and awareness. The purpose is to give instructions on how to defend oneself as opposed to teaching aggressiveness or bully tactics. A certified black-belt instructor will cover the basics including techniques and form with the students. It is important to note that no physical contact will be allowed in beginner's classes. Testing will be available for rank promotion!
