Like the progress my grandson is continually making under the current "Director"! He is a great instructor! He takes kids/young people through a rigorous training using a great skill set, a little humor and a few compliments as they progress!

My daughter takes Taekwondo here and has been coming for two years. This is the only sport she kept wanting to do and it’s not a fight for us to take her to class. I also have been doing Krav Maga level 1 and Level 2 and Kickboxing for a year and a half and I love coming to class because it’s fun and educational! Master Dave and Miss Young do a great job!

Halloween Safety

Easy and Vital Tips to Stay Safe on Halloween

Ghosts, Goblins and Witches, oh my! The Halloween season brings a lot of fun memories for people. They can find their favorite characters or alter egos and dress up as other personas for a night. Taking children around the neighborhoods for candy at night has become the American staple for Halloween traditions. There are also social gatherings such as Halloween themed parties or dances that many people like to attend. But, as with any party or social event, there is always a slight risk of danger that women, in particular, should be aware of. As fun as Halloween can be, going out late at night can place women in vulnerable situations. These are some tips on how women can stay safe on Halloween and still have a great time:

Travel in Pairs

When people see a group of women or two friends attached at this hip, they can be sure that these women will stay that way for the entire evening. It is important to stay with a group or another person because they have someone looking out for their well-being at all times.

Stay Aware of Surroundings

Looking around and identifying suspicious individuals or objects can mean the difference between a good and bad situation. When people can observe all the nearby surroundings, they are able to anticipate and/or avoid situations that can occur. For instance, paying attention to suspicious vehicles parked down the street in the neighborhood can prompt someone to call the police immediately. Or, eyeballing a nearby exit in a crowded house party can alleviate the need to find one upon leaving later.

Have Emergency Numbers on Speed Dial

Another way for women to stay safe on Halloween is to keep emergency numbers on speed dial. This prevents one from needing to dial numbers in any frantic situation. It is also a good idea for women to hold onto their phones as they are walking to their cars. Doing so will give them quick access to a call or text if anything were to occur at that moment.

Stay in Well-Lit Areas

With Halloween, most events will likely happen in the evening. Trick-or-treating with the kids or hanging out at a party will definitely be during the evening hours where it is dark and riskier. Parking vehicles under bright lights or staying in well-lit neighborhoods will help to reduce the chance for a dangerous circumstance.

Keep a Weapon

It does not necessarily have to be a gun or a bat, but having some type of weapon can make women feel more empowered and ready for any situation. This could look like a mace spray or her own fists. To feel more comfortable using these things, women should enlist in some free or low-cost self-defense classes that will give them the tools to defend themselves in vulnerable situations.

The spirit of Halloween can be fun and celebratory for women in many different ways. Mothers get a chance to help their kids dress up and stroll neighborhoods in their adorable costumes. Other women can play dress up themselves and attend parties to socialize with their friends. As much fun as these types of things can be, unfortunately, the dangers involved with these events will increase as well. So, it is important that women follow some of these easy to follow tips to ensure a fun and safe Halloween.
