Violence: Preparing for the Unexpected

Verbally, ethically, emotionally, and physically, how can you prepare for violence when it's unexpected?

How might you recognize an attack before it happens and de-escalate or avoid it?

What might be going on in the mind of a perpetrator or someone you know who's about to do you harm?

City Visions brings together experts in the areas of martial arts, self-defense, law enforcement, and psychology to have the difficult conversations about boundaries of self and force of the law when encountering violence in its many forms.

You won't want to miss this riveting and controversial conversation.

Join host Joseph Pace and guests:

  •    Peter Ajemian, founder and chief instructor of Soja Martial Arts in Oakland
  •   Gwynn Brookes, martial arts and self-defense instructor, Girl Army collaborative
  •   Rory Miller, author and teacher; former corrections deputy, sergeant, and advisor in Iraq

Monday, July 8, at 7p.m.
Producer: Lisa Denenmark
