OPAF launched First Safeguard on April 25 at Wright State University, as part of the EMRI Alliance’s Unlimited Abilities Expo. First Safeguard, the 12th OPAF First Clinic, was led by Ohio Peace Officer Doug Morgan, who underwent a transtibial amputation more than 20 years ago, and martial arts expert John Powell. Morgan and Powell offered tips and techniques about personal safety for those facing physical or mobility challenges, and demonstrated specific personal defense moves and close quarters contact.
