SOAR members will also gain knowledge of techniques that are both practical and effective in escaping, redirecting, and countering an aggressor’s actions. Traditional martial arts training improves confidence, character, focus, and inner peace. Topics to be presented: history, balance, ki (chi) energy, strikes and blocks, self-defense, and meditation techniques.
