Self-Defense Class Scheduled for Feb. 22

The Department of Public Safety is offering several free self-defense demonstrations this semester to students. The program combines a hands-on approach to learning effective techniques with information about crime prevention. Designed for both female and male audiences, the class incorporates simple strategies for escaping potentially dangerous situations.

The first demonstration will take place from 2-4 p.m. Feb. 22 at the Student Recreation Center. The class can accommodate 30 students. Those who complete the class will receive a specially designed safety whistle. To sign up, email with your name and cell phone number. Members of Alpha Phi Omega will also be assisting with registration to fill the first class. Dates for the additional demonstrations will be announced in a future Truman Today.

Students interested in additional self-defense instruction should also consider taking ES 199 RAD: Rape Aggression Defense in the fall.
