Minot Community Members Learn Self-Defense

Posted: Updated:
Moore's Shou Shu Martial Arts hosted its fourth annual "Kickin' It in the Park" event this weekend. Around 30 people came out Saturday and Sunday.


Students learned techniques on how to react when they're in a moment of danger, while maintaining control of their own body, important lessons for a growing community.

"So people feel safe, and they're not scared. Being scared is not okay. You shouldn't have to feel scared coming out of your house, and so, you should be able to enjoy the community," said self-defense student and teacher Alexis Potter. "So it's really important for people to come out and see that these type of things are available to them."

"The community's growing, and there's new people moving into the community," said Moore's Martial Arts instructor Rodger Martin, "and to have knowledge of what you can do if a situation arises, that you really need to know how to have those skills, whether you're bigger or smaller, that you're gonna be able to take care of yourself."

Moore's Martial Arts offers free self defense classes for women in the Minot community on Thursday evenings.

You can find out more information on classes on their Facebook page, just search "Moore's Martial Arts Minot."
