As a part of our "Ask the Expert" series we are pleased to have Officer Paul Carrubba of the Southington Police Department run this women's self-defense series. Officer Carrubba has been training in the martial arts for over twenty five years and ran his own martial arts school for ten years prior to becoming a police officer. The focus will be on self-defense techniques and awareness. The classes will be "hands on" and can be done at your own pace. The duration of the class will bring you from a basic skill level to an advanced level by week four. The series will run for four weeks, each week building on the prior week's skills that the participant has learned. If you register for the series, please note that you will be registered for the four-week duration.
