Master John Accardo will be providing basic instruction in personal self-defense in noncredit classes this spring at Northland Pioneer College locations in Show Low, Springerville/Eagar, Holbrook, and Snowflake.
You don’t have to be big or strong to use the techniques Master Accardo will share in the four-week Self-Defense In-Depth class (reference HPE 099x) on Fridays, February 1 to 22, from 2 to 4 p.m., at the Show Low Campus, 1001 W. Deuce of Clubs. “You just need to know where to hit to put someone down,” he explains. The cost of the In-Depth classes, open to ages 14 and up, is $50.
He will be offering one-day basic Self-Defense classes at NPC’s Springerville/Eagar Center, 940 E. Maricopa in Springerville, on Friday, March 22; at the Holbrook Campus, 2251 E. Navajo Blvd., on Friday, April 12; and at the Snowflake/Taylor Campus on Friday, May 3. All classes meet from 2 to 4 p.m. and cost $20. These classes are also for ages 14 and up.
Master John Accardo is a 6th Degree black belt with over 43 years of experience in martial arts. Master Accardo was voted instructor of the year in 1990, and is still a top instructor today, not just teaching his own class but teaching black belts and other masters instructors. Master Accardo was also two-time state champ and 3rd twice in the world competition for fighting. In the last 30 years, he has been working on and perfecting the simplest self-defense from punching and kicking to knife defense, very simple to use and very painful for the attacker.
