SHERIDAN - Sometimes Sheridan Rotarians have unusual meetings and Tuesday, Aug. 1, was no exception to that rule. That was the evening when martial arts Sifu (teacher) Coy Monroe was the club guest speaker and he brought along several of his students to give a demonstration. It was good that the students were there because otherwise the Rotarians might have had to serve as stand-ins for the demo, and we all know that Rotarians do not enjoy being beat up!

Normally Sifu Monroe is Officer Coy Monroe of the Sheridan Police Department but as a sideline business he teaches martial arts classes at his dojo (school) Pai Lum Tao Martial Arts Sheridan, located at 2690 W. 236th St. in Sheridan. This is a good family activity if you want to do something with the kids and your spouse, but it is also valuable to individuals wanting to develop some self-defense expertise just in case it is needed someday.

The Rotary program consisted of demonstrating multiple defensive moves that are sometimes necessary to defend one's self. As noted by Sifu Monroe, however, the best thing you can do when you encounter a threatening situation is to run away. But that is not always possible and in those situations where you cannot get away, sometimes knowing a few defensive moves can make a big difference.

Another thing Sifu Monroe's training teaches is self-discipline and good moral character, things that are sometimes missing in today's youth. If you are interested in learning more about Sifu Monroe's dojo, please contact him at (317) 435-6860.
