Call to Freedom with the support of Cain Ellsworth & Company and the
Northwest Iowa Lifelong Learning & Recreation Center (LLRC) will offer a FREE
Self-Defense Workshop to community members and college students on Wednesday, Oct. 10 at 7:00 PM.

The self-defense workshop will include lecture, video, and hands-on training on the topics of fear management, pre-attack indicators, real violence, mindset tools, and physical practice. This workshop is intended for individuals’ ages 9 years old and up. Refreshments will be provided, and participants will be eligible to win door prizes just for attending that night. While this event is free of charge, we will be taking a free will donation to support Call to Freedom.
