via email

Accessible World ClassRoom of the Air presents A Non-Visual Perspective on Self-Defense, August 17, 2010

In this seminar, Larry Lewis, President of Flying Blind LLC will be discussing non-visual strategies for self-defense techniques that can be used by persons who are blind/visually impaired. Lewis has studied a few different martial arts but has found his passion in training Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, a grappling-based Martial Art with a highly affective self-defense component that requires no vision to learn and utilize.

Lewis will be discussing the components of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu as well as the pluses of training in this amazing martial art as well as offering strategies for avoiding conflict situations should they arise.

Users will gain an understanding of how such a Martial Art can improve the overall quality of one’s life while keeping them safe in the unfortunate event that much larger assailants attack them.
