Girls Rule - Mother/Daughter Rape Self-protection.
The annual Girls Rule Rape Self-protection program is now accepting enrollment. As horrific as the crime of rape is, with the proper training it is one of the most preventable of all crimes. This well thought out, time proven self-protection program has won numerous national awards for its effectiveness over the last 20 years. Instructor Mathew Bayley was the Consultant to Safety and Training at the Colorado College for over a decade. Mr. Bayley instructed at the Colorado School for the Deaf and Blind for 6 years where he received a commendation from the Commissioner of the Colorado Department of Education for his “outstanding skills in both motivating and educating with a high degree of effectiveness” and received the national Certificate of Appreciation from the Girl Scouts of America for his work in implementing teen women’s safety programs in the Wagon Wheel Council In Colorado Springs. There are four components to this program: Awareness and assertive training, physical self protection and family communication and support.

MORE TEACHERS - MORE CLASSES
As the Dojo (Karate school) reaches full enrollment, I will be adding more instructors to keep the teacher/child ratio at the appropriate level to maintain the highest program standards. I would like you all to welcome the first three additions to our teaching staff: my lovely wife Rebecca, Anthony Guida and Dana Johnson to the Dojo. Over the winter, expect to see at least three more teachers join our staff.
We now offer 10 children’s classes per week. With the exception of the Monday 3:30
Black Belt Honors class, all classes are available to the students to make up any missed classes during the month.
Cold and Flu Season
Please keep your Ninjas home if you even think they are getting sick. We have plenty of makeup classes available during the year
