Free Self Defense Training That Could Save Your Life
(Collierville, TN) It’s estimated that one in four woman will be a victim of a sexual assault in their lifetime.
As part of Sexual Assault Awareness Month, this weekend the YMCA at Schilling Farms is offering a free class to help woman defend themselves.
The class is being taught by Endurance Krav Maga.
Thursday morning, instructors and students showed off some off the choke holds and release moves that will be taught during the one and a half hour class Saturday.
Instructors say it doesn’t matter your fitness level anyone can benefit from the class right away.
Woman who have been taking the class for a while say they feel stronger and more empowered.
“We practice with the men sometimes so you actually have a feeling what it is like to be grabbed by a big guy. It’s different. It’s definitely harder, but it kind of prepares you more for a real life situation,” said Crystal McMahan.
The free class is Saturday from 11:30am – 1pm at the YMCA at Schilling Farms in Collierville.
They will also be collecting old cell phones to donate to the victims of domestic violence.
