Give the Gift of Self Defense

Perhaps the most important Chanukah gift we can give ourselves or our loved ones is the art of self defense.

Chabad of West Orange will be offering a six-week, Wednesday evening course, beginning on January 4, with certified instructor Rabbi Michoel Shapiro. There will be a women’s class from 7:30-8:30 p.m. followed by a men’s class from 8:30-9:30 p.m.

Rabbi Shapiro is a certified instructor in the Israeli systems Krav Maga and Haganah (F.I.G.H.T.). Drawing upon over 15 years of experience with these reality-based combative methods, as well as elements of mixed martial arts, he teaches students of all levels.

The session will cover dealing with an active shooter situation in a public place, or school; defense against a gun threat (being taken hostage at gunpoint); defense against a knife attack; defense against a knife threat (being taken hostage at knife point); defense techniques against common unarmed attacks; and combative principles and tactics.

According to Rabbi Shapiro, if you can walk to shul without difficulty, you qualify physically.

This potentially lifesaving six-week course is $100 per student as an introductory rate.

Please send payment prior to class to Chabad of West Orange, 401 Pleasant Valley Way, West Orange, NJ 07052.

Wear comfortable, loose-fitting clothing and sneakers to each class.
