The Chapel Oaks Seventh Day Adventist Church and Critical Personal Response (LLC) are offering a free women’s self-defense seminar on October 15 from 2:30 - 5:00 p.m. in the Activity Center. This seminar is intended for women aged 12 to 95 who would like to know more about self-defense. The instructor has earned a 5th Degree Black Belt in the Bushidokan System and a 4th Degree in the Kenukan System and with over 50 years of experience has developed/adapted techniques suitable for a seminar for untrained participants who may never pursue martial arts any further. This is a get out of the grasp and run not a stand and fight seminar. Critical Personal Response (CPR) much like the other CPR is intended to provide critical assistance when there is no one else to help. The other CPR is not intended to make you a medical professional and this CPR is not intended to make you a Martial Artist. But it may provide you with the skills to save your life!

You will have the opportunity to learn:

  • Attitude
  • Evasion Techniques
  • Awareness
  • Releases
  • Street Strategy
  • Hit-n-git Techniques!
  • General Philosophy

Critical Personal Response (CPR) is not intended to take the place of traditional martial arts training. Our techniques and philosophy are based on the Bushidokan Martial Arts system founded by Mr. Jim Harrison. But no seminar can replace serious martial arts training. Like the ‘other CPR’ our seminar should not be a one-shot deal, but should be refreshed on a periodic basis, I believe every 12 months is the maximum interval between seminars.


Our next Health and Garden Club event on Sabbath, October 21, 2023 will be featuring natural remedies with many of them coming from your own kitchen. Other remedies demonstrated will use essential oils and charcoal powder.  What can you use when your feeling "under the weather"  How can you ward off bugs in the great outdoors with essential oils. Did you know onions and garlic are great antibiotics and can be made into poultices?  What about that potato--see what treatment it can do.  Have some inflammation, come learn about ginger poultices.  You will learn about this and several others.  Bring a note pad to take notes--no handouts available.  Join us for a plant based potluck at 12:30 p.m. with the program beginning at 1:30 p.m.  Bring a friend!
