    This sounds like a really great event and so important!

    As part of the TAKE ACTION – I’d like to inform the participants of a FREE Self Defense course I’ve been offering for the past 8 + weeks at Metropolitan State University St. Paul Library 3rd Floor Wednesday nights 7pm – 8:30pm OPEN TO THE PUBLIC.
    Unfortunately we only have one final class left this Wed. In talks to create a seminar during the summer on this issue. Please stay tuned. Contact is petekwong@gmail.com

    Thank you!
