HINSDALE — The Police Department will teach a Safety and Self-Defense class for female high school and college-age students on Aug. 16. The class will last 2.5 hours and cover how to stay alert and be prepared in many situations, and teach self-defense techniques.
Students will spend half the time in the classroom and the other half learning self-defense maneuvers, practicing them, and then using them in a controlled situation.
The class aims to teach young women to be prepared for anything and everything and how to avoid becoming a victim.
The class will run from 1 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 16, at the Hinsdale Police Department, 121 Symonds Drive.
Space is limited, so students must register in advance.
