Learning How to Respond if Attacked

Provided, Survive Institute
Mike and Debbie Gardner and the Survive Institute

  What would you do if attacked in a dark parking garage or assaulted on a deserted city street? Most of us would probably freeze. But for more than 30 years, Mike and Debbie Gardner of the Survive Institutehave been training people how to be aware of their surroundings, to avoid confrontations when possible, and to defend themselves when necessary. Defense experts and “Courage Coaches” Mike and Debbie Gardner join us to talk about what they term, “Self-defense with love.”

The Gardners will be conducting a courage-based self defense seminar, sponsored by EmpowerU-Ohio, April 22. For information and registration, click here.
