As the old adage says, forewarned is forearmed.  

Malibu resident and self-defense expert Ted Silverberg taught life-saving, common sense techniques at an Aug. 1 Circle of Trust seminar, held at Malibu Fitness. 

Rather than teach attendees how to box or use sophisticated martial arts techniques, Silverberg focused on practical tactics and strategies that could help an individual escape an attacker.
