“There are so many reasons to take self-defense classes and learn how to properly defend yourself and the ones you love,” Coffman’s Martial Arts owner/instructor Heather Coffman stated.
“Just a few of these reasons are personal trauma, going to a new school/college, switching jobs, moving to a new town, the state of your surroundings, the state of our economic environment, and the list goes on.”
Coffman said there are “so many facets of ‘being safe’ and the first is awareness and knowledge.”
She said that many people “think that if they carry a gun they are safe. This is only partially true.”
Knowing how to defend yourself without a gun adds to your arsenal of knowledge and skills,” Coffman said.
“Knowing how to defend yourself is knowledge that you can pass on to your loved ones.
“Everyone, no matter of age, health or skill level, is capable of taking these self-defense classes.”
She added that the self-defense classes offered at Coffman’s Martial Arts “are practical, and the skills are easy to learn and remember.”
