Twenty (20) Filipinas participated in the two-hour basic self-defense workshop. They learned simple and effective ways on how to defend themselves against harassment, attacks, and rape. Pro-Dojo professional mixed martial arts instructors, Ms. Irish Villanueva and Mr. Fadi Hananiah, shared various techniques and tips on self-defense.
The participants appreciated Post’s initiative and were enthusiastic to improve their newly acquired skills by enrolling in various self-defense classes in Amman.
