The women’s only, 15-hour class is divided into five three-hour blocks.
The class includes instructional material such as risk reduction strategies, defensive mindset, and patterns of encounter. Students will learn physical defense techniques, such as strikes, knees and kicks. They will learn how to escape from abduction attacks such as wrist grabs, bear hugs and choke holds. There is a small section devoted to defense on the ground. The final day is a dynamic simulation exercise where the student can practice what they have learned in a controlled, safe scenario.
Instructors are Sgt. John Campbell, events and crime prevention coordinator at the JMU Police Department, and Bob Hicks, an employee with the Bridgewater Police Department.
