Five Alarm is excited to partner with Band of Brothers Martial Arts to offer a Self Defense Seminar on Saturday, March 14, from 9:30 am to 12 pm (Noon).
The seminar will focus on real-world safety and defense techniques designed for anyone. You will learn how to defend yourself and your loved ones with quick and effective actions that will allow you to avoid, defuse, escape, or if necessary, attack to end a threat.
From simple threats to worst case scenarios involving weapons, we hope you never have to deal with these situations… but knowing what to do, and what not to do, can help save you from injury or worse.
No previous experience is necessary! The cost for the seminar is $40/person and will be limited to the first 16 participants. Click HERE to purchase your tickets today! If you have additional questions, contact Coach Josh at firstname.lastname@example.org; and if needed, he can connect you directly with the instructor.
“Hello! I am Sam Spence, Co-Owner of Band of Brothers Martial Arts, LLC. I am a Bloomington native and I also work for our City. I live here with my wife Samantha (also Co-Owner of the gym), and our two rescue pups, Angus and Sydney. You may see them pop up on our Facebook, Twitter or Instagram posts from time to time.
My journey with martial arts began at the age of five, training in Tae Kwon Do with Master Manny Sosa. I accomplished ranking up to Purple Belt and soon after, my interests led me to baseball, and football. When I was in High School, a sparring match with a friend of mine rekindled my interest in martial arts. I enjoyed learning about different arts, studying them in books and learning from friends. At the age of 16, I found my way to Twin City Boxing and took my first (painful) class with Guro Scott Petri and Lakan Guro Joe White. I was hooked ever since, and have been fortunate to train with Guro Scott for over 10 years. I’ve met many great athletes and instructors during our seminar travels.
I am so thankful, honored and humbled by this journey. I look forward to continuing ranking and maintaining my certifications.
