OUT PROFESSIONALS PRESENTS ‘TWO HOURS OF POWER,’ A SELF-DEFENSE DEMONSTRATION AND WORKSHOP WITH MARTIAL ARTS’ KATHY UNGER.
On Tuesday, January 24, Out Professionals presents “Two Hours of Power,” a self-defense demonstration and workshop with Kathy Unger, an accomplished First Degree Black Belt. Now more than ever, we need to be empowered with the confidence and practical skills to create boundaries and respond effectively.
In an unforeseen emergency, when your skilled efforts at prevention and avoidance fail, will you be prepared with self-defense strategies and striking techniques? “Two Hours of Power” aims to help you trust your awareness, assess situations rapidly, and protect yourself.
With Kathy, you learn to recognize and respond to threatening behavior with strong, assertive body language and verbal self-defense skills. Role-playing and pad drills train you to strike with power, speed, and commitment.
This demonstration is open to all; comfortable clothing and appropriate footwear recommended.
Kathy Unger is a First Degree Black Belt in the Poekoelan system (Indonesian martial arts). Poekoelan employs fast, whip-like strikes and leverages biomechanics to gain advantage in fighting situations. Kathy has led seminars for Fortune 100 companies and educational institutions including American Express, Bank of America, NBC, NY Presbyterian Hospital, NYU and Baruch. She is also a certified personal trainer and Licensed Reiki Master Teacher.
“Two Hours of Power: Be Your Own Bodyguard” takes place on Tuesday, January 24, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. With your participation, this inaugural workshop can become an OP series, supporting the LGBT community and promoting safety.
