VAN ORIN — BREAKOUT! Van Orin, the Tae Kwon Do Ministry of Van Orin Gospel Church, will offer two new classes. 

In November, BREAKOUT! will offer a basic self-defense seminar. The seminar consists of six sessions in which participants will be introduced to 30 self-defense techniques. Participants will be taught how to respond to various types of attacks such as a two-hand grab, choking, wrist grabs, grabs from behind and various weapon attacks. Tuition is $30 per person. There is no uniform required for this class.

In January, BREAKOUT! will offer a cardio-conditioning class. The class consists of endurance training, strength training and general conditioning. This is not an aerobics class; however there will be some elements of aerobics as well as martial arts included. Tuition is $20 a month. There is no uniform required for this class.

For more information about either of these classes or a Tae Kwon Do class, call Dr. Jeffery Patrick at 815-638-2552.
