With violent incidents on the rise nationwide, local self-defense instructors are seeing more residents interested in taking courses to learn to better protect themselves.

Master Chuck Crone, of Crone’s Tae Kwon Do in New Kingstown said he has seen a rise not only in child and young adult classes, but older adults wanting to learn basic self-defense.

“We have been growing pretty much across the board,” he said.

Crone, who teaches Tae Kwon Do as well fitness and self-defense classes, said in the last month he has seen a 40 to 50 percent rise in students, with 13 new people coming through the door.
