FAST self-defense course for adults Nov. 20

Brandon Sieg, a black belt in martial arts, returns to Harrison County Tae Kwon Do School in Lanesville on Saturday, Nov. 20, for a seminar on FAST Defense.
FAST stands for Fear, Adrenaline flooding, Stress and Training. Sieg, who conducted a couple of the self-defense seminars in Lanesville last spring, called it a self-defense course unlike any other.
The course will provide adults with comprehensive defensive strategies such as awareness and verbal and physical skills against the most common types of assaults.
Earlier this year Sieg explained that FBI statistics point out that 80 percent of assaults are committed with a verbal threat alone and no violence. ‘It’s the verbal assault or that lure that precedes the attack that’s more important,’ said Sieg. That’s what makes it important to harness your adrenaline and channel it in a positive way to establish boundaries right away in a threatening situation.
This month’s course will involve Levels 1 and 2. Level 1 was taught here in the spring. Level 2 involves ground fighting. The cost for both courses will be $50 while the individual courses will cost $40 each. The seminar begins at 10 a.m.
