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.
