The Charlottesville Sheriff's Office and the UVa Police Department are teaming up to host a women's self defense class.
This is a two-day class held on June 29th and 30th. It is open to women in the community who want to know a few techniques on how to defend themselves against a threat.
Instructors from Rape Aggression Defense (RAD) will be teaching the class, along with members of the Charlottesville Sheriff's Office and UVa police department.
"It's important to remind females that if they are attacked, there's a chance they have that they can escape the threat," says Officer Angela Tabler from UVa Police Department. "It's a basic self defense class and it helps them become alert and shows them some basic self defense moves."
Registration begins Tuesday May 28th and runs until June 17th.
To register you can contact Officer Tabler at Tabler@Virginia.edu or Sheriff James E. Brown at Sheriff@Charlottesville.org.
