MOUNT KISCO, N.Y. -- Knowing how to defend yourself and others in a dangerous situation can be the difference between injury and neutralizing a threat. In order to help teach the fundamentals of self defense, Saw Mill Club is offering a self-defense workshop for participants of all ages and skill levels.

This unique course is offered by the Aikido dojo at Saw Mill Club and is based on almost three decades of the instructor’s experience in law-enforcement and victimology. Students will learn how to avoid becoming victims and practice applying new techniques that can be performed regardless of their physical or athletic ability. They learn the physiological responses and signals in self-defense and violent situations and how to exploit these responses and signals.

This is not your typical self-defense class, nor are the techniques the typical ones you’re likely to have learned either. Attendees aged 12 and older are welcome.

The workshop will include:

  • Psychology of combat
  • Physiology of combat
  • Reading attackers
  • Victim signals
  • Studies and evidence based on victimology and criminology
  • Body signals
  • Preparedness
  • Body mechanics

Hands on practice will address:

  • Various grabs in different positions
  • Headlocks
  • Strikes
  • Hand weapons
  • Firearms
  • Restraints
  • Self-defense in the dark

The workshop will be held on Sunday, April 17 and Sunday, April 24 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and is $45 per class or $80 for both. For more information contact Brian Gould at
