Cocoa Beach Karate recently held assault prevention and self-defense seminar at Cocoa Beach Health & Fitness, drawing 35 local attendees and the Cocoa Beach Police Department members, and a Cocoa Beach city councilwoman.
The seminar was held to assist children, teens, and adults.
Lt. Manny Hernandez and Sgt. Tom Copper of CBPD provided information and answered questions while councilwoman Karalyn Woulas supported the event and participated.
Participants were provided with information on assault prevention and taught some basic self-defense techniques and strategies.
“It was gratifying to see moms and daughters participating together and practicing punches and kicks together,” said Sensei Des Chaskelson, owner of Cocoa Beach Karate. “It is important that they are made aware of how to conduct themselves and what to do if they are in a dangerous situation.”
Two PDF documents were provided on assault prevention and anti-bullying (these are available to the general public on request).
