Self-Defense Training For Women To Be Held
The Sandersvillle Police Department and Jones County Sheriff's Department are teaming up to offer a "R.A.D. Self-Defense Class" for women age sixteen and older.
The Rape, Aggression, Defense (R.A.D.) Self-Defense class is being taught by Sanderville Police Department Sergeant Liz Walley.
The three night class will be held from 5:30pm to 9:00pm on Friday, May 19th; Saturday, May 20th; and Monday, May 22nd, at the Jones County Sheriff's Department Training Center located at 130 North 12th Avenue in Laurel.
"This R.A.D. Self-Defense class is designed to teach women the basics of how to defend themselves against an attacker," notes Sgt. Liz Walley.
Walley adds, "We combine classroom instruction with practical hands-on defensive tactics training to help prepare women in responding to an attack by an aggressor. This training can save lives and change outcomes."
The cost for the class is $50 per person and is payable in cash or by check made to the "Town of Sandersville". Those women age sixteen (16) and older who are interested to learn about self-defense are urged to contact Sgt. Liz Walley at 601-394-3797 for additional information and to register for this class. Classroom size is limited to the first fourteen women who register. Additional classes will be offered as the demand for training increases.
