Sensei Ferraro and Black Belt team are just dedicated, focused on teaching great / fantastic pure Okinawan Karate. They also focus on the art of sparring using Karate techniques we learn in our Katas! And they are dedicated not only to this fascinating world of Karate but Senseis also make sure we get mental integrity to avoid mental break down, self steam, as well as physical fitness to avoid body break down. I, as an adult, and my 9 year old daughter are just very happy to be part of Sensei Ferraro Dojo and Karate lineage. We feel the difference in our lives pre Ferraro Karate and post Ferraro Karate. Thanks Sensei and Black Belt Team of Ferraro Karate!!!

Easy and Vital Tips to Stay Safe on Halloween

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


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.

Keep a Weapon

It does not necessarily have to be a gun or a bat, but having some type of weapon can

make women feel more empowered and ready for any situation. This could look like a

mace spray or her own fists. To feel more comfortable using these things, women

should enlist in some free or low-cost self-defense classes that will give them the

tools to defend themselves in vulnerable situations.

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.
