Self-Defense & Boxing Fitness for Sisters | Amber Leibrock

June 23 @ 2:30 pm 4:30 pm

Sisters: Join us for another session of self-defense classes. These classes are delivered by a seasoned mixed martial arts professional and aim to equip you with the skills to fend off unwanted physical contact effectively. Max 32 attendees. Ages 14+ only. $20/person.

2:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. | Sunday, June 23 | Conference Room | Register at mcceastbay.org/ready | Sisters only

Recent tragedies against Muslims across the country & the familiar rise in hate attacks in this Presidential Election year make us duty-bound to learn grappling countermeasures. A professional athlete will show you how to fend off unwanted physical contact, like a Hijab pull. 

Please note that the class will start on time. If you are more than 30 minutes late, you will not be able to join the class. Please be respectful of the instructor’s time.

Cancelation policy: If you cannot make it, please let us know ASAP so we can give your spot to the next person on the waitlist. You will not be eligible for a refund if you cancel with less than 24 hours notice.

MCC has a standing policy that financial need should never prevent a person from attending any event or class held within the community center. To request a financial waiver, message scholarship@mcceastbay.org
