Fourth-degree black belts Jeremiah and D.C. Hackerott lead a crew of certified instructors that teach fledgling martial artists how to chop, kick, and uphold their code of honor. Women learn to grab threatening situations by the scruff of the neck during the Sexual Harassment Assault Rape Prevention—or S.H.A.R.P.—self-defense workshop. In addition to safety tips for avoiding dangerous situations, this two-hour tactics seminar discusses how attackers choose their victims, how the body reacts during stressful situations, and how to build a defensive weapon out of hand sanitizer and a scrunchie. When these concepts have been covered, femme fatales learn to recognize the five most common attacks and how to defend against them.
Taekwondo programs gather fledglings of all ages under their wizened wings and clothe them in crisp new uniforms. Little ones learn hand-eye coordination, balance, life skills, basic taekwondo, and “stranger danger” abduction prevention in the half-hour pre-karate kubs classes. During the beginners’ basic program, instructors teach new students how to use a variety of techniques in multiple realistic situations, how to transmute a high-five into a high kick, and how to avoid fighting altogether with verbal judo. Prospective students should check the online class schedule before enrolling.
