A Time To Act

We have had several acts of violence against women here in our small town over the past few weeks. I decided that it was time to act…not make money from the fear of others.

Anyone who follows, or knows me and the dojo, knows that I strongly believe in Community Support and paying the community back. I believe in helping when we can as part of our civic and moral duties.

Rocky Mountain Shito-Ryu Karate-Do has offered self –defense and rape prevention seminars for women free of charge several times in the past . After reading the local paper and having some of my adult students, one of whom knows one of the victims of these so-called “home invasions” voice concerns, I decided it was time to act and do what we could to help.

I decided to offer a women’s self-defense course absolutely free of charge to anyone wishing to take it. Unlike a seminar, this course will last through the month of November with classes at 3:00 pm on Saturdays at the dojo. There are more details on the dojo’s website.

In good conscience I cannot take money for something that we have offered in the past for free. Nor can I exploit the fear and concerns of the citizens or take advantage of them in a time like this for monetary gain. There is no honor or ethics in that.
