Bad guy grabs you! Are you ready?

While I believe that there is still a lot of good in this world created by great people who sacrifice to help others, I am not blind to the evil that seems to be ever present.  As the old saying goes, "an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure!"  Let's add protecting yourself and your family to the long list of reasons that we need to get and stay healthy.  Improved endurance, strength and speed will give us a better opportunity to defend ourselves and those we love.  Recently, I was introduced to a new form of self defense.  Last weekend we held a demonstration of this new theory of self defense.  As I watched the demonstration and participated in learning some basic techniques I really enjoyed the blending of different martial arts techniques combined with understanding your own mental outlook and that of potential aggressors.  It is a sad reality that predators seek out the week to be their victims, thus the way to prevent becoming a victim is to become strong physically and mentally.  After the demonstration, I think there is one more element to add and that is prepare by learning these specific techniques. 

TERRIO Therapy will be offering an 8 Week Self Defense Class meeting once per week.  If you are not in the Bakersfield area, I would recommend seeking out similar classes.   I think this is a great course for everyone.  Hopefully you will never have to use any of the techniques taught in this class but if a bad situation ever arises at least you will have some skill to call upon.  Call (661)410-3343 to register for the upcoming class. 

Elias Larimer, Instructor  (in the black gi)
Following his strong passion for martial arts, Elias has earned a Blackbelt in both Karate and Jujitsu.  Larimer has been a dedicated student of various forms of martial arts for many years and has moved into teaching over the last couple years.  He enjoys sharing his love of the arts and what he has learned.
Larimer is a proud member of a newly developing association called International Combat Arts.

This style centers on real life scenarios, and is based on concrete scientific principles.  Students will build a strong foundation of movement, improved understanding of the human body and mind both of themselves and any potential aggressor.  Classes will be small to assure safety and constant feedback as skills are developed and refined.
