Destrehan TaeKwonDo Plus Academy will be offering a women’s self-defense class on Saturday, Feb. 5 at 1 p.m.

In this practical course, women will receive self-defense training for physical and verbal attacks. There are no “secret moves” or complex techniques, just plain talk and straightforward defensive methods that you will practice on a live target.


This course is for any woman over 13 years of age and the academy says that the class is perfect for those women that are in the health care industry, work odd hours, are heading off to college, or would like to have the feeling of security that knowledge brings.


“You don’t have to be the toughest person on the street, just a more difficult target than the next person,” Instructor Donna Bergeron said. “Most crimes against women are crimes of opportunity for the bad guy to take advantage of you.”


Destrehan TaeKwonDo Plus Academy is located at 124 Longview Drive Suite 6B (Red Church Shopping Center) in Destrehan.

Instructors of the class will be Bergeron, Trent Gautreaux and Rhonda Sigrist. For more information, call (985)764-9775.
