Sei Shin Dojo offering free self-defense classes for AAPI women

Glenn Genovas, an East Village resident (and a third-degree black belt in American Jiu-Jitsu) and owner of Sei Shin Dojo on Avenue A, is offering free self-defense classes.

Here's more via the EVG inbox:
Since there has been a rise in violence in the Asian community toward women I decided to do a Self Protection course for AAPI women. This free course will start in April and last eight weeks. This will be held on Thursdays, one in the afternoon and the other after work hours. Both courses will be teaching the same subject.
You can find more info here, including how to register. 

Sei Shin Dojo is at 34 Avenue A (second floor) between Second Street and Third Street.

Nice move. Sorry to see there aren't more 'Guardian Angels' type groups walking in the Chinese community for protection.

This is great!! Should be offered to all women gratis though....

The city should pay him and others to teach all women.

Really appreciated! This is a great idea and so generous of Glenn. It’s sick that Asian Americans have to carry mace when we go out these days.

Attacks on APAI 's have spiraled almost 350 percent increase in one year, fyi.
