Self-Defense Basics
Paul Wade and Tina Tappouni
Two sessions:
• 3:30 – 5:00 p.m. OR
5:30 – 7:30 p.m. (Part 1 of 2-day session)
Students will be taught basic but extremely effective skills to counter attacks from every angle -- including ground attacks. The class will be led by certified self-defense instructors Detective Paul Wade and Tina Tappouni.  These skills they will teach are derived from Krav Maga -- the Israeli military fighting technique with a proven combat record -- and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, the premier ground-fighting and ground self-defense art in the world. With these new skills, students will gain the confidence they need to survive instead of being victimized. No prior experience is required, and the class is open to all Summit attendees. 
Class limited to 12 participants. You will need to sign-up to participate at the Summit Information Table in the Lower Level Foyer of the Red Lion Hotel on the River.
This class will be repeated on Wednesday, from 3:30 – 5:00 p.m. There will also be a two-part evening class taught Tuesday, from 5:30 – 7:30 p.m., and Wednesday, from 5:30 – 7:30 p.m. Participants for the evening classes are encouraged to participate both Tuesday and Wednesday.

Jackson MichelsonJackson Michelson concert for Summit attendees
7 – 10 p.m. • Grand Ballroom
Sponsored by the Oregon State Sheriff’s Association, rising country music star Jackson Michelson will be performing exclusively for Summit attendees in the Red Lion Hotel on the River's Grand Ballroom.  This is a performance you won’t want to miss.
About Jackson: Raised in Corvallis, Oregon, Jackson Michelson kicked off his country career on the West Coast, carving out a sound that blended the rootsy twang of the American South with the sunny, feel-good spirit of the Pacific Coast. Nashville — the official capital of country music — lay 2,300 miles to the southeast, but Michelson focused on his home turf first, building an audience of West Coast fans who were drawn to his high-energy shows and relatable songwriting. By the time he did move to Nashville, he'd already spent years on the road, growing his fanbase show-by-show and earning a record contract with Curb Records in the process.  Now, with a record deal under his belt, Michelson is prepping for the next phase of his career. There are new shows to play, new songs to be written and new opportunities to explore. But he's still the boy from Corvallis, happy to sing about "The Good Life" — a life he's built himself, show by show and song by song — to an audience that continues to grow.
NOTE: Conference badge is required for entry — no exceptions. A limited number of guest tickets are available. Please see registration staff for availability.
