MAHOPAC, N.Y. - EnerShe Fitness, a women's health center in Mahopac, is hosting a women's self-defense seminar Saturday from 12:15 to 2:15 p.m., and club owner Karly Schneider believes it's a session women will find valuable.
"I believe this is important information for every woman, every young girl," Schneider told Daily Voice. "To know some self defense, and be able to deter a potentially dangerous situation.
"Most women won't take down a man who has 50 pounds on her," she added, "but we can do some maneuvers on them and get away. We all should have this knowledge."
Self-defense expert and Holmes resident Craig DeRosa will be the guest speaker. DeRosa will give a talk and then show some basic self-defense moves at the two-hour seminar.
The event is free to members and the general public. There is a suggested donation of $10.00 - with all proceeds going to the Women's Resource Center of Mahopac.
EnerShee Fitness is located at 989 Rt. 6 in Mahopac, and can be reached at 845-628-7165.
