Women’s Self Defense Seminar

Bellport High School’s Center of Excellence Club presented its 2nd Annual Women’s Self-Defense workshop in recognition of Women’s History Month. Bellport HS Social Studies teacher, Mr. J. Scioli, was the guest instructor. Mr. Scioli is a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Black Belt with 20 years of martial arts experience. The female student body was invited to learn techniques in situational awareness and disabling attackers. The experience was invaluable to the empowerment of our young women and the workshop will be hosted every year during Women’s History Month.
