For confidence in personal defense, freshman Nikki Armstrong began taking self-defense courses.

“I used to have my dad and my brother to protect me when I was home,” Armstrong said. “I just realized I have to protect myself now that I’m off on my own in case a situation comes up.”

Armstrong was one of the women who participated in yesterday’s Rape Aggression Defense Systems of Self Defense class sponsored by Fairfield. The women-only classes are geared towards teaching women self-defense tactics to protect them from male attackers.
