COLORADO SPRINGS — Self-defense is a very important skill, especially in today’s modern world. This is why 5News reporter, Caroline Peters spent the morning at Calvary Family Martial Arts and Fitness (CFMAF) learning some tactics to better defend herself.

The CFMAF owners, Issac and Heather Costley, were happy to demonstrate realistic situations that would require self-defense techniques. CMFAF offers several classes here for all levels and age groups. And with kids going back to school, it’s important to make sure your kids can protect themselves. But, it’s also just as important for adults to be able to do the same.

Those at CFMAF say it’s never too soon to realize that life is unpredictable and you don’t want to be stuck in a difficult situation. Caroline Peters knows this from first-hand experience. Peters recently was in a scary situation and she realized after that moment that she wouldn’t be sure what to do if the situation had escalated.
