Self-Defense Club at the RSO Fair Today!

The UChicago Regsitered Student Organization (RSO) fair is today at 3:00 in the Henry Crown Field House. Self-Defense Club will be one of the tables in attendance.

Self-Defense Club
Come and learn practical self-defense techniques for real world situations! You have read the Incident Reports and heard the stories before; anyone can be the victim of a robbery, mugging, sexual assault, or worse. Even at UChicago, you should always be prepared to survive, defend yourself, and defend those you care about. As a member of the Self-Defense Club, you will learn how to handle...
  1. Chokes, grabs, and holds
  2. Punches, kicks, and strikes
  3. Tackles and takedowns
  4. Knives
  5. Handguns
  6. Gang/crowd attacks
We teach the Haganah system, an Israeli martial art closely related to Krav Maga. I have practiced Haganah for 4 years now under the instruction of Prentiss Rhodes. Classes will be co-instructed by me and my wonderful partner (and club President) Merry Herbst, herself a 2 year practitioner of the style. Our training schedule is below:
  • Wednesdays, 8:00 - 9:30 PM
    Henry Crown Multipurpose Room
  • Fridays, 3:00 - 4:30 PM
    Ratner Dance Room (2nd floor)
  • Sundays 3:00 - 4:30 PM
    Henry Crown Multipurpose Room
Classes are free to attend. All students must wear athletic attire and bring closed-toe shoes. If you plan on sticking with the club, you must obtain groin protection for your safety and the sake of effective training.


Email me with any questions or concerns, or to sign up if you can't make it to the RSO fair.
