Sims Patrick Studio Learns Self-Defense



Sims Patrick Studio recently participated in an after-work self-defense class for a fun and informative bonding activity. The class was taught by F.O.R.C.E. Krav Maga, a defense system that uses the natural movements of the body for self-defense.

The group event was spearheaded by Vice President Jenny Rutledge, who takes the self-defense class about once a week at her local fitness studio. “Everyone should know the self-defense basics to stay safe,” Jenny said.

The entire staff, plus a few family and friends, attended the session in CEO Libby Patrick's backyard. We learned how to walk with confidence, be aware of your surroundings, and many helpful maneuvers to use when stuck in a sticky situation, such as ground fighting, wrist grabs, kicks, and more.
