Kelowna, Canada - November 22, 2020 /PressCable/ —

Great Way Martial Arts of Kelowna has announced that they are introducing classes specifically designed for teenaged girls and their mothers. Research shows that when women are able to quickly identify threatening situations they are likelier to defend themselves. This six week course teaches how to recognize ploys used by assailants to manipulate women and how to thwart them.

The four week course teaches you how to release yourself from basic grabs and how to strike vital targets. Also covered is the effective use of body language and voice to command off a confrontation. Other skills taught are how to defuse, de-escalate and evade a situation before physical assault happens.

Our self defence classes help hone physical skills and give you a fantastic workout to help you stay in great shape. Great Way Martial Arts’ real world based training methods will leave you feeling more self-confident and self-aware and better equipped to defend yourself in any situation.

Owners Esmeralda and Sifu James Heinrich have owned and operated Great Way Martial Arts for over 25 years. The 7000 square foot studio is located at 2243A Leckie Rd Kelowna, BC V1X 6Y5. Sifu James has been training in the Martial Arts beginning with Kung Fu, Kickboxing and Shaolin Kung Fu before commencing his journey in Wing Chun in 1990.

“Studies show that young women who know how to defend themselves often don’t have to because of how they carry themselves more confidently, and confidence alone is a deterrent to bullies.” says Esmeralda.

For parents concerned with their daughters’ safety when they go away to college or university or starting to work in the job force this is an excellent way to equipment them with skills to be more aware and protect themselves. It is also a great way to spend one on one time for mothers and daughters.

NEW YORK — Cynthia Erivo and Greta Gerwig rocked sparkling chokers as the Golden Globes red carpet kicked off Sunday, with Erivo in a hand-beaded custom Thom Browne gown and Gerwig in black and cream. Both went off-shoulder for the big night in Beverly Hills, California. Erivo, the “Harriet” star and fashion standout, said her dress includes designs of her favorite flower, the peony, at the hem and in her lining. The short-sleeve gown, Erivo told E!, took 800 hours.

Judge: No slander in Alec Baldwin's comments on parking spat

Nov 30, 2020

NEW YORK — Alec Baldwin didn't slander a man in interviews about a parking dispute that turned physical, a judge has ruled as dueling lawsuits between the actor and the other driver continue. Baldwin's remarks — including claims that Wojciech Cieszkowski's driving was “really fast,” “really aggressive” and made the actor think his wife and son were about to be run over — were "hyperbole" and "rhetorical illustrations," Manhattan judge David B. Cohen wrote Thursday. “They are words of frustration with someone's driving,” not accusations that amount to slander, Cohen wrote. He tossed out Cieszkowski's slander claim, but his assault...

Innovative fashion designers lead the way on sustainability

Nov 30, 2020

LONDON — Innovative fashion designers are turning to such things as horseradish and nettles to make sustainable clothing and accessories to the delight of a growing number of buyers. While more consumers are paying closer attention to how the production of goods impacts the environment, old habits die hard. A buy-and-toss mentality persists despite a boost from celebrities helping to drive the upcycle and vintage movements. Actress Maggie Q, who created an activewear line from recycled fabrics, is among activists who see plenty of room for improvement. She says she feels "sick about fast fashion.'' "You hear people say, 'Well,...

Streep, Miranda and Stone are named as Met Gala co-0chairs

Nov 30, 2020

NEW YORK — Next year's Met Gala may be the closest we'll ever come to getting a Miranda Priestly moment at the starry event. Meryl Streep has been named as a co-chair of the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute. The Oscar-winner played Priestly, a thinly veiled fictional version of Vogue editor Anna Wintour, in the movie "The Devil Wears Prada." Wintour clearly has no hard feelings because she selected Streep as a co-chair along with Lin-Manuel Miranda and fellow Oscar-winner Emma Stone. Designer Nicolas Ghesquiere rounds out the group. The gala's theme is "About Time: Fashion and Duration," which...

ABC says interview with Epstein accuser wasn't ready to air

Nov 30, 2020

NEW YORK — ABC News faced questions Tuesday about its reluctance to air a sensitive story of alleged sexual misconduct after a leaked video emerged of reporter Amy Robach complaining about how her bosses handled an interview with a Jeffrey Epstein accuser. The conservative web site Project Veritas released video of Robach venting that "every day I get more and more pissed" that her 2015 interview with Virginia Giuffre never made the air. Robach made her remarks late in August while sitting in a Times Square studio with a microphone but not on the air. ABC said Tuesday that the...
