Senator Addabbo’s Director of Events, Peter DeLucia, says that more self-defense classes are planned for local senior centers this summer:
Thursday, August 25 @9:30 AM
Ridgewood Older Adult Center, 59-14 70th Avenue, Ridgewood; 718-456-2000
Thursday, August 25 @ 11 AM
Woodhaven Richmond Hill Senior Center, 78-15 Jamaica Avenue, Woodhaven; 718-296-0464
Senator Addabbo notes, “Most of my district’s senior centers are predominantly attended by women. When I met Evon Reyes and she described her self-defense classes, which specialize in personal development and assertiveness training for women of diverse ages, I knew my seniors would welcome the idea. Evon’s training methods have produced positive results in the lives of her students who don’t want to become tomorrow’s crime statistics. We’re hoping many men at the centers will also fearlessly join the classes."
About Fearless Fighting Females
Fearless Fighting Females was founded in 2010 focused on two goals: to empower a woman by reminding her of what a powerful and spectacular creature she is; and to reaffirm what every woman should already know -- that no obstacle or challenge can stop her from dreaming or making dreams come true. According to Reyes, “Fearless Fighting Females is for all of us who fight to overcome our deepest fears so that we may conquer the challenges of tomorrow.
Evon Reyes has volunteered her time to local organizations and within her community by offering free one-hour self-defense workshops with WET Production Risk Takers Program, Girl Scouts of America, and the York College Women’s Center.
