Two Cobb County police officers (my husband and another officer, who have over 20 years of martial arts training between them) are going to be teaching a women's personal safety seminar on March 1st, from 9:30-5:30. The cost is $65 and includes a light breakfast and catered lunch.
This is a spin-off of a self-defense course that my husband has been teaching for the last 8 years (Fightback!) and includes everything from identifying and avoiding dangerous situations, learning to listen to that "gut feeling" that says something is wrong, laws regarding stalking and domestic violence in Georgia, statistics on crimes against women, identifying abusive behaviors (or behaviors that could escalate into abuse), and, of course, a broad range of techniques to disengage from and escape an attacker (whether it be a strange on the street or someone you've known for years).
