DANBURY, CT – MARCH 5, 2010 — Han Dol Martial Arts, LLC, the only martial arts school in New England to teach the martial art style of Soo Bahk Do Moo Duk Kwan (SBDMDK) full time to both children and adults, will now be conducting self defense classes for women in the greater Danbury area. Starting Saturday March 6th at 11:00am, classes will be held the Han Dol Martial Arts School for a ten dollar donation for each class.
This version of martial arts taught by Han Dol has been around for decades. It teaches its students to focus enough power and energy in each kick and strike of the fist to split blocks of wood. Women will learn these techniques and how to apply them under various circumstances where they are threatened by criminal activity.
“I have personally been in a situation where these techniques worked for me to the point where, had I not used them, I would have been severely hurt by a group of attackers with weapons,” says Master Frank Tsai, one of Han Dol’s world class master instructors. “I think these classes will boost the self esteem of women and make perpetrators think twice when they view women as easy vulnerable targets when they find out that women in the Danbury area are taking them.”
About Soo Bahk Do Moo Duk Kwan

It is an art of self defense and philosophy and its secrets cannot be bought at any price other than serious and rigorous training. It is an art tempered on the lawns of Buddhist monasteries, against the steel of wandering bandits and on the fields of combat; its history is a long and honorable one.
