Learn Self Defense

Sun Dragon provides personal safety training and violence prevention workshops for people of all ages and all genders. We believe that an individual is most likely to make the best decisions in threatening situations when she or he has developed a variety of responses, including assertive boundary setting, conflict resolution techniques, and physical defense skills.
