My son and I both attend Synergy and love it. Master Derek and his team are amazing. They are patient and kind yet firm enough to keep everyone in check.

My daughter and I train in both Tang Soo Do and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu at Synergy Martial Arts. There are plenty of training opportunities throughout the week and there is an overall family friendly atmosphere. It’s a great place to get in shape and make new friends.

Easy and Vital Tips to Stay Safe on Halloween

Ghosts, Goblins and Witches, oh my! The Halloween season brings a lot of fun memories for people. They can find their favorite characters or alter egos and dress up as other personas for a night. Taking children around the neighborhoods for candy at night has become the American staple for Halloween traditions. There are also social gatherings such as Halloween themed parties or dances that many people like to attend. But, as with any party or social event, there is always a slight risk of danger that women, in particular, should be aware of. As fun as Halloween can be, going out late at night can place women in vulnerable situations. These are some tips on how women can stay safe on Halloween and still have a great time:

Travel in Pairs

When people see a group of women or two friends attached at this hip, they can be sure that these women will stay that way for the entire evening. It is important to stay with a group or another person because they have someone looking out for their well-being at all times.

Stay Aware of Surroundings

Looking around and identifying suspicious individuals or objects can mean the difference between a good and bad situation. When people can observe all the nearby surroundings, they are able to anticipate and/or avoid situations that can occur. For instance, paying attention to suspicious vehicles parked down the street in the neighborhood can prompt someone to call the police immediately. Or, eyeballing a nearby exit in a crowded house party can alleviate the need to find one upon leaving later.

Have Emergency Numbers on Speed Dial

Another way for women to stay safe on Halloween is to keep emergency numbers on speed dial. This prevents one from needing to dial numbers in any frantic situation. It is also a good idea for women to hold onto their phones as they are walking to their cars. Doing so will give them quick access to a call or text if anything were to occur at that moment.

Stay in Well-Lit Areas

With Halloween, most events will likely happen in the evening. Trick-or-treating with the kids or hanging out at a party will definitely be during the evening hours where it is dark and riskier. Parking vehicles under bright lights or staying in well-lit neighborhoods will help to reduce the chance for a dangerous circumstance.

The spirit of Halloween can be fun and celebratory for women in many different ways. Mothers get a chance to help their kids dress up and stroll neighborhoods in their adorable costumes. Other women can play dress up themselves and attend parties to socialize with their friends. As much fun as these types of things can be, unfortunately, the dangers involved with these events will increase as well. So, it is important that women follow some of these easy to follow tips to ensure a fun and safe Halloween.
