Practical Self-Defense Demonstration at ADP


Jeff Cubeta ’10 sends us word of a self defense workshop at ADP:

Instead of focusing on how to beat up someone once an engagement has started, we’re going to analyze self defense from a preventative position. Topics will include, situational awareness, what to do when confronted with violence, avoiding violent situations as a whole.Our guest speaker Robert Wise will be joining us from West Philadelphia, where his own experience with unsafe conditions will help inform the demonstration. It’s important to stress that this isn’t a kung fu lesson; rather, our focus is on recognizing, avoiding and escaping dangerous situations.

Date: Sunday, February 15th
Time: 2-4 p.m.
Where: ADP Greene Room

Sponsored by the Adelphic Educational fund

    In west Philadelphia born and raised
    On the playground was where I spent most of my days
    Chillin’ out maxin’ relaxin’ all cool
    And all shootin some b-ball outside of the school
    When a couple of guys
    Who were up to no good
    Startin makin trouble in my neighborhood
    I got in one lil fight and my mom got scared
    She said ‘You’re movin’ with your auntie and uncle in bel Air’

    I begged and pleaded with her day after day
    But she packed my suite case and send me on my way
    She gave me a kiss and then she gave me my ticket.
    I put my walkman on and said, ‘I might as well kick it’.

    First class, yo this is bad
    Drinking orang juice out of a champagne glass.
    Is this what the people of Bel-Air Living like?
    Hmmmmm this might be alright.

    But wait I hear the pricey booze, wine all that
    Is Bel-Air the type of place they send this cool cat?
    I don’t think sow
    I’ll see when I get there
    I hope they’re prepared for the prince of Bel-Air

    Well, the plane landed and when I came out
    There was a dude who looked like a cop and yelled my name out
    I ain’t trying to get arrested
    I just got here
    I sprang with the quickness like lightening, disappeared

    I whistled for a cab and when it came near
    The license plate said fresh and it had dice in the mirror
    If anything I can say this cab is rare
    But I thought ‘Now forget it’ – ‘Yo homes to Bel Air’

    I pulled up to the house about 7 or 8
    And I yelled to the cabbie ‘Yo homes smell ya later’
    I looked at my kingdom
    I was finally there
    To sit on my throne as the Prince of Bel Air
