How do you ensure personal safety when adventuring in the outdoors? Staying aware of your surroundings is one of your best defenses against crime. You need to be aware of where you are, what you are doing, and who else is around. In this two-hour session led by Changing Lives Martial Arts, you will learn how to arm yourself with tools and education to know how to handle potentially dangerous situations outside. Meet in the classroom at REI Virginia Beach. Space is very limited, so if you register and then cannot attend, please be sure to cancel your spot so that someone on the waitlist can sign up.
