Self Defense

In alignment with the California Physical Education Standards, the Life Fitness 1 classes take part in a Self Defense Unit in the month of February.
The unit places emphasis on three core areas:
1) physically defending oneself,
2) personal safety/awareness, and
3) developing/maintaining healthy relationships.
We use a variety of instructional tools to meet the objectives of this unit and foster conversations around the three core areas. You can view our unit resources below.
