First of all, on behalf of everybody at Encounters International I want to thank Steve Mattutat for his presentation at the mini seminar on self-defence in Arlington, VA. I admire Steve's dedication to the cause of making the world a little safer place to live and I hope that many ladies found the information useful. Those ladies who participated in the demonstration (see the slide show) have received T-shirts as a reward for taking the lead. I am sure, that our gentlemen liked the presentation as well. Video of the seminar will be available soon on this web site.
Disco dancing and more socializing followed the presentation and lasted well after midnight. As usual, new matches were made while some couples who met at the last month Christmas party have been already talking about engagements. Last, but not least, bolshoye spasibo to everybody for your birthday wishes to me on this day.
