Signup underway for Grayslake Park District's final '16 self-defense class
The final class of 2016 of the Grayslake Community Park District's Brave Way Self Defense program is set for 7 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 7, at the Grayslake Recreation Center MPA in Grayslake, according to www.glpd.com.
The two-hour class, originally designed to instruct police officers, is for participants ages 12 years and older, although children ages 8-11 can participate with an adult. Participants will learn techniques to stop an attacker – armed and unarmed, and regardless of physical size – by people of any age, size or skill level, and whether seated, sitting or on the ground. Instruction on recognizing and avoiding dangerous situations also will be included.
Costs to participate are $26 per resident and $33 per nonresident. The registration deadline is one week prior to the start of class. Class size is limited to a maximum of 12.
