PMA is keeping busy recently with a community self defense clinic held for the DZAP corporation at our Old Town dojo. Students were introduced to a wide array of defense techniques such as escaping from grabs and choke holds, in addition to discussions about being more alert to possible bad situations. Special thanks go to the instructors who guided the students such as Becky Black, Michael Brown, Margaret Izotov, Heather Graves, Michael Kaminski and Seth Brown.
A black belt retreat was held overnight at Lake Cuayamaca where students engaged in seminar discussions and also study the kata Bassai Sho.
Coming up this next week is belt testing and promotions for the junior students. In a few more weeks is the annual winter camp (kangeiko) to be held at Lake Moreno.

- College Kid Self defense strategies!
- Help prevent the quiet bully action against your child!
- Family awareness!
This summer the PMA is offering a series of free clinics for you and your kids going back to college or to regular school to help them be more aware and have some usable skills to protect themselves.
If your college kid is going away in a few weeks they can use this material or even as a refresher to their current knowledge to make them more confident and ready for bad situations.
For elementary and high school kids, they can face the bullying aspect that occurs at school and can endure this for a period of time without saying anything or being ill equipped to handle it.
Come to our safety and awareness clinics this summer and be more ready. The clinics are fun and very empowering.
You will need to sign waivers, be in good health, and have a cooperative attitude.
What do we teach you? We show you defensive skills such as escaping from grabs, choking, on the floor attacks, and threatening situations. We also teach the mental side of self awareness such as being alert, what to look for, how to extricate, recognizing possibly bad situations and more.
