Sunday, July 15, 2012

PHOENIX, Arizona, July 15, 2012 – HIT LIKE A GIRL, a women's self-defense and personal security program, announced today that Agent Rhonda Roth will teach a self defense class for women on Saturday, July 28th. The two personal security seminars will take place at Nottingham Sword & Shield Security Bodyguards & USA Martial Arts Kickboxing Training Center at 4731 E. Greenway Rd. Suite 9-10 Phoenix, Arizona 85032 from 10-12:30pm.
“This course is designed to give women unconventional but highly effective step-by-step protective strategies, said Rhonda Roth, founder self defense specialist, Hit Like a Girl.  “You won't here the typical advice of "be aware of your surroundings" or other nebulous women's self-defense ideas.  Practical self defense skills begin with a practical set of beliefs, a plan and accurate information about protection.  This includes knowledge of how predators operate, assertion competence for boundaries, detection, avoidance and escape skills.  You won't be seeing the typical "fight like a man" advice or other impractical advice.   Seminar participants will be taught how to identify, prevent and thwart would-be dangerous situations.”
“Students attending the seminar will be learning from a trained Bodyguard and Self Defense expert,” added John Nottingham, co-sponsor and founder of Nottingham Sword & Shield Security. “Agent Rhonda Roth has been trained by some of the best, including graduating Gavin De Beckers Academy for Protectors and Bodyguard Training International. Her years of teaching experience, coupled with her advanced training in the martial arts and hand to hand combat, will bring some great insight to the students. This is a great opportunity for mothers and daughters to learn together and is open to women 13 and up.”
“During the Handbags, Heels and Chocolate seminar we will discuss and examine potential scenarios where a woman may be attacked,” added Agent Roth. "We use an empowerment teaching model as opposed to a fear based model.  The seminar will have an academic interactive approach. Students will learn practical strategies used by Agencies, such as the Secret Service, that are effective and easy to execute.  The second seminar, "It's Hot!" emphasizes unconventional tactics for using pepper spray and weapons of opportunity.  It also dispells many of the common myths surrounding self defense and personal security including the infamous groin kick.  The women's self-defense and personal security seminars will take place in a safe and supportive environment, and students will learn how to use brains over brawn, avoid being a victim and become intelligently empowered and armed with practical knowlege.”
The cost to attend the Handbags, Heels and Chocolate seminar is normally $195 but those who register online early can do so for just $35. The "It's HOT!" pepper spray seminar is normally $395 but with early online registration is only $95 or $125 for both events.  For more information or to register email or visit Facebook Hit Like a Girl.
