WARWICK — The Chosun Taekwondo Academy, a local martial arts school with headquarters at 60 Galloway Road in Warwick, hosted its popular Women’s Self-Defense Course on Sunday, May 7, at the Albert Wisner Public Library.

The 37 women in attendance were taught skills in awareness and avoidance as well as martial arts techniques aimed at diffusing an unprovoked attack.

“This event represents a logical extension of our school’s philosophy emphasizing the self-defense aspects of taekwondo, the Korean martial art, rather than those limited to sport competition,” said head instructor Master Doug Cook. “We routinely address this component of taekwondo in our traditional curriculum and routinely offer our services, free of charge, to any women’s groups or civic organizations.”

A comprehensive guide describing the principles of self-defense, along with a detailed explanation of the various techniques demonstrated during the seminar, were distributed to all attendees.
