The Torrey Pines High Schools chapter of Dollars for Scholars will host a self-defense seminar on May 6 titled “Survival Under Pressure.”

The fast-moving session, led by Shell Winder, will “highlight secrets that perpetrators don’t want you to know.” It aims to teach simple and practical ways to avoid becoming a victim. The program is geared toward participants who are 12 and older.

Winder is an assault survivor, certified Martial Arts Instructor and third-degree black belt.

The hourlong seminar will take place at 4 p.m. May 6 at Ocean Air Recreation Center, 4770 Fairport Way in Carmel Valley.

The cost is $20, or $35 for a parent/daughter pair. All proceeds support Dollars for Scholars.
