University Settlement’s Self-Defense Classes featured on WNYC’s “The United States of Anxiety”

Our self-defense classes were featured on WNYC‘s ‘The United States of Anxiety,’ hosted by Kai Wright.

Sammy Yuen, who teaches the classes, shares how he set out to use his martial arts skills to teach the skills they need to protect themselves, explaining:  “Self defense is really about spatial and environmental awareness. I think there is a misunderstanding of what self-defense is. I’m not going to teach someone how to fight off five people at the same time in an hour session. It’s really about avoiding the whole situation in general and being aware of your environment.”
