World Taekwondo to offer free women’s self-defense clinic

World Taekwondo Academy of Maple Grove will hosting a free Women’s Self Defense Clinic.

“After that last tragedy in Connecticut, I couldn’t believe what happened and couldn’t imagine what the families and community is going through,” Grandmaster Lee of the World Taekwondo Academy said. “I am going to do a free self defense training course to all the women in Maple Grove for free. I want to give back by offering this class that is a must for all females. One out of four females will be assaulted and by learning some basic self defense tactics I believe it will help anyone.”

The free Women’s Self Defense Clinic will be Saturday, Feb. 2, at 10 a.m. at the Maple Grove location, 6463 Sycamore Court N. The clinic will offer women the opportunity to learn self defense and awareness techniques that work in real-life situations. Participants will learn practical self-defense, all while in a safe and controlled environment.

Those attending should wear loose, comfortable clothing. Bring a friend.
