Attack Protection Tips
The pattern of an attack followed by most human attackers is:
1. Select an easy victim. Someone who seems oblivious, fearful or unawware.
2. Create a position of advantage to gain privacy and control.
3. Dominate the victim through intimidation, physical assault, or robbery.
4. Escape so they can get away without getting caught.
The quicker we can break or inturupt this pattern the safer we will be. This program will teach us 3 boundaries.
1. Gut feeling, things don't feel right.
2. Verbal - your attacker interviews you to see if you are the victim...use your verbal skills
be polite but assertive, perceived confidence is confidence.
3. Physical - if that person continues to come towards you and you have warned them to stay
away, it is on.

Spread the Art Night

Good morning everyone, I just wanted to remind everyone of our Spread the Art Night tonight March 25th.

This is where we invite freinds and family to the Academy for a workout at no cost.

Kids 4:00 pm - 4:45 pm
Adults 5:15 pm - 6:00 pm
Teens 7:05-8:00 pm

These classes are lots of fun and you get to meet so great people. We hope to see you there.
One of the greatest gifts we can give is the gift of friendship and love. Maybe you have heard the phrase, "What you think about you bring about". It is such a true statement. Have you ever bumped into someone you were just thinking about? If you think that you are "lacking" something in your life, maybe it is love or enthusiasim, then you need to give more of that out.
As parents and adults it is easy to get caught up in the day to day tasks that we all must do. However whenever possible take the time to give and recieve a hug. And avoid the temptation to hug quickly, take a time and enjoy the connection you are having with that person. If you are belssed enough to have kids, truely take that time, becuase too often it passes by too quickly then they no longer want to hug.
Have a great week, remember in any arena of your life where you feel lack give more of that away, and watch what comes back to you.
