From the CHKA website: We have been offering this free walk-in class as a service to the women of our community for over 20 years. The class focuses not only on self-defense techniques, but also on ways to prevent becoming a victim – the first line of self-defense is common sense!
Proper punching and kicking techniques are emphasized, as well as techniques for taking down one’s attacker. Sifu Jack incorporates the knowledge gained in his years as a bodyguard, US Marine, and competitive martial artist to help you defend against your potential aggressors.
The SMASH class is the longest continuously-running free class of its kind in NYC. Women 14 and older are invited to attend as many times as they like.
There is never a fee charged for the SMASH! class, and you are welcome to attend as many times as you like. We do ask that you make a small one-time donation to the school by purchasing a CHKA t-shirt to wear to class. CHKA t-shirts are $20.
