Newsletter Q4

Dear SMART Kravers,

This is the newsletter for Q4; we are going to finish this year with a BANG!

1. Workshop “Empowerment Self Defense”

Last August, Nina participated in a special training in New York to become an Empowerment Self Defense (ESD) Instructor. Empowerment Self Defense is a self defense system from women for women, that starts from the fact that most women suffer from violence by people that they know. Think about partners, family, friends and colleagues. Aggression or harassment by people who are close to you is often more subtle, confusing and covers lots of grey areas.  
In addition to the physical skills that we learn in for example Krav Maga, ESD includes the following points:

*What is violence? And what are indications of potential danger?*What are your boundaries? And how do you verbalize them?*Using your voice: verbal deescalation techniques and saying NO*The importance of self-care: asking for help AND sharing success stories 
A workshop will be coming up soon! With special discount for SMART members. Stay tuned!

7. Payments

As agreed to in the terms & conditions of your registration, monthly payments are ongoing throughout the whole year. Also during the winter stop, and/or when you have not been attending classes for a month or so.

These fees also cover extra-curricular trainings and your annual insurance. If you have been missing classes, you are more than welcome to catch up on other training days that you don’t regularly attend.

In case of special circumstances, such as injuries/moving out of Brussels/long term illness/deregistration/etc, please contact us directly.

8. P-level testing

 Exact date is still to be determined and will be announced soon, but we are in discussion with nearby clubs to arrange a suitable date.

All of you are on great track – and we feel that we want to take advantage of the last season of this year to freshen up your KM skills in order to nail that exam (we know you will make us proud)!

Level testing is not obliged, but it will allow you to have a clear idea of where you stand on the Krav Maga ladder and push yourself further. Please note: regular training is necessary in order to properly prepare yourself for the exams.
