Krav Maga Self Defense Workshop:

We will discuss early ways to deal with a potential threat - avoid, leave, de-escalate - and then train physical combatives and defenses to use in some of the most common types of violent assault. In addition to defense against physical assault, training also instills a mindset of self respect and empowerment that translates directly into the psychological capacity to withstand and respond to mental/emotional stressors...a benefit when it comes to suicide prevention in our field. Training augments the ability to prioritize and problem-solve under stress, which helps assessment and decision making at work.

Wear comfortable workout clothes with shoes. Any physical limitations will be accommodated during training. Self defense is a basic life skill. Don’t miss this awesome opportunity for education and empowerment!


The PVMA will be offering a 6 week fitness pilot program to provide PVMA and OVTAA members an opportunity to try different styles in a non-intimidating way with friends and colleagues. 


There is a direct correlation between physical health and mental health and we all could benefit from some accountability at times! Join us for a class, with snacks and time to visit with friends after!
