In honor of Women’s History Month, the Spodak Dental Group sponsored a Women’s Self-Defense class on Tuesday, March 14 and welcomed all female community members to attend. The class was led by Kelly Beringson, a certified female Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Black Belt. The 90-minute course is completely underwritten by Dr. Craig Spodak as a way to help community learn confidence and awareness through women’s self-defense.
According to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence, in the U.S., a woman is assaulted or beaten every nine seconds, and one in three women have been victims of some form of physical violence by an intimate partner within their lifetime. On average, nearly 20 people per minute are physically abused by an intimate partner in the United States. During one year, this equates to more than 10 million women and men.
“I am so proud to be able to host this event and help community members learn valuable life-saving methods that they hopefully never have to use,” said Dr. Craig Spodak, general dentist at Spodak Dental Group. “The Delray Beach community has been home for me, my family and my company for more than 45 years, and I am happy to be able to support my community members whenever I can.”
Stay tuned for the next event!
