On Sunday, January 11th au pairs from the Annapolis cluster of Au Pair in America received hands on instruction from Jing Ying Institute on practical easy to recall self-defense moves should they ever find themselves in a dangerous situation. Billy and Nancy Greer, the owners, demonstrated several areas of personal protection to include (1) awareness and avoidance techniques; (2) escaping mechanisms and (3) quick easy to use fighting back tools enabling an au pair to escape if someone larger and stronger attacks. The au pairs left feeling empowered and better prepared! For more information on this workshop please visit www.JingYing.org. They are located in Arnold and offer many wonderful classes for your entire family.
