Traverse City Women's Self Defense Program Is Helping Empower Northern Michigan Girls, Teens and

Traverse City Women's Self Defense is needed now more than ever. Traverse City is remote, friendly, protected - but unfortunately predators are popping up more and more. Women's Self Defense training is becoming a must for Northern Michigan women looking to give them the edge in personal protection combat. Young ladies heading off to middle school, teens starting high school, co-eds heading off to a college or university, moms and female professionals working late -- all are potentially at risk.

The Women's Self Defense program at the Seung-ni Martial Arts Academy in Traverse City is leading the way in this important push to equip women with the skills, confidence and vital street smart knoweldge they need to stay safe. Led by Master Instructor Kevin Shoults (owner and founder of Seung-ni Traverse City), the Women's Self Defense classes provide hands on instruction in the key ares of striking (knees, elbows, palm heels, and eye jabs), ground defense (brazilian jiu-jitsu escape moves and submissions), vital targeting (eyes, nose, groin and nerve centers) and specific self defense situational training like what to do if a rapist or mugger grabs you from behind or pulls your hair.

Most females in Northen Michigan and Traverse City specifically know that they "should" take a women's self defense class but many are intimidated and worried they might get injured or may not be able to perform the movements. This common myth is dispelled at the Seung-ni Women's Self Defense seminars held in Traverse City. First the training gym is clean, bright white, well lit, padded and inviting - not scary. Second, the instructors (Master Shoults and his female black belt assistants) are friendly, encouraging, postive and non-intimidating. Third, the techniques taught are easy to remember, effective and not hard to perform. Fourth, most of the Traverse City area women who participate often bring a family member, co-worker or friend as a training buddy.
