– Self Defense Workshop with Richard Dittler using the the Personal Defense Rediness (PDR) system based off of a only self-defense method that fully integrates the body’s reflexive responses and instinctive survival mechanisms making it the easiest, most natural way to protect yourself, and manage and overcome fear.  If you attend and never use it, it will be a fun workout. Better to have the tools and not need them than to need them and not have them.
