Girl Power: Self-Defense for Young Ladies to be Held at Bryan Bennett
That's why the Salem Police Department, in cooperation with the Bryan-Bennett library, are holding a Self-Defense class for young ladies at the Bryan Bennett Library in Salem. Sergeant Susan Miller of the Salem Police Department teaches the course and says that young ladies need to be ready for anything.
"My goal is to give them an idea of what they might be able to do and give them some reasources as to where to go. This course is basic, so they know how to do it in case they have to" Miller said.
The two hour workshop takes place this Saturday, February 22nd from 9:30 to 11:30am and covers General Awareness and Safety, Dating Violence Awareness, Sexual Assault Prevention Methods, and Self-Defense Techniques. The workshop is aimed at younger women, but any woman above the age of 13 may attend. Sensitive topics will be covered, and younger girls should be accompanied by a female adult.
