OTC Hosts Women’s Self-Defense Classes to Benefit SWAN
Olney Taekwondo Center (OTC), 233 E. Main St. across from Arcadia Cinemas, and SWAN (Stop Woman Abuse Now), Inc. hosted two women’s self-defense classes Oct. 25 in recognition of Domestic Violence Awareness Month.
The classes attracted 22 participants. Proceeds went to support SWAN, with over $200 raised.
Participants learned techniques that are easy-to-learn, yet highly effective. They also had the option to learn to break a board at the end of the class.
Master Nathan Wheatley, OTC chief instructor and 5th degree black belt, taught both classes. Wheatley has over 23 years martial arts experience including training in taekwondo, hapkido, Brazilian jiu-jitsu, kali and mixed martial arts.
In addition, OTC will offer an expanded, 8-week women’s self-defense course beginning in January. Those interested may contact the school the register at 392-3800 or http://OlneyTKD.com.
