The Holidays are always a time of joy, family, and celebration, but, with fantastic sales at almost every establishment, it is also a time for shopping, and, unfortunately, the potential for increased theft. In preparation for the season, KSA Martial Academy is offering a free, 4-hour ASSERT Empowerment and Self Defense workshop to Nashvillians living and working in the Sylvan Park, Nations, and Charlotte Avenue Corridor this coming Saturday, 23rd of November, at 2PM.

Located at 4910 Charlotte, KSA Martial Academy, or KSAMA for short, is ideally situated and uniquely qualified to provide this particular service to the area. Two of the founders of this local school are the creators of the award-winning ASSERT program, which is currently in regular use by numerous South Florida Public and Private schools, several organizations within the University of Miami, in-patient eating disorder clinics, nationally recognized at-risk and Foster Care youth groups, and countless families and corporations as a means of self-defense education, team-building, and familial and social group bonding experiences.

The up-coming free workshop will require pre-registration and proof of residency/ work address from participants, but it will be taught by the creators of the program – an opportunity currently usually reserved for Instructors seeking certification to teach the program, and promises to be fun, informative, and immediately applicable. Potential participants are encouraged to bring family members of all ages and physical capabilities.

The Miami, Florida-founded ASSERT Empowerment and Self Defense was established in 2004. Based on crime case studies, reporting, and statistics, victim services, law enforcement training, and nearly 40 years of martial arts practice, ASSERT offers a variety of certifications, ranging from Family and Personal Safety and Self-Empowerment to Law Enforcement and Protection Services Assault/ Defense Tactics and Program Instruction. The program’s founders have trained a wide range of students, from Elementary, Middle and High School-aged children and families thru SWAT, FBI, DEA, and top military components.
