Modern Warrior FSD Week 2013 Schedule



Ground Zero Trip in Progress

Modern Warrior Staff, Female Self Defense Week Guest Instructors, and attendees took a field trip today to the historic Ground Zero Memorial.

The day had begun with a group trip into NYC to visit the site, followed by lunch, and then an opportunity for our out-of-town guests and New York Natives to experience the Big Apple independently.

Ground Zero is no doubt a humbling and fitting place to begin our fourth annual event Female Self Defense Week.  This historic memorial reminds us of our heroes past, and why we train.
