An eight-hour basic women’s self-defense course designed to instruct women on ways to protect themselves in the event of an attack, is being offered at Lone Star College in Kingwood. The class will be held on Mondays and Wednesdays between 6-8 p.m., on June 9, 11, 16 and 18 in the Fitness Center dance studio, located on campus at the intersection of Royston Road and Sorters Road. All women, ages 14 and older, are encouraged to attend. The evening news and the local papers remind us that robberies, carjackings and random acts of violence occur every day. Women are particularly vulnerable. Some of that vulnerability is due to naiveté that they could become a victim or that they have never been taught ways to defend themselves.

In as few as eight hours, a woman can learn fundamental self-defense strategies as well as increase her awareness of potentially dangerous and avoidable situations. Dr. Chris Martin, an expert in the martial arts, will instruct the class. Included will be discussions of different scenarios that may call for defensive action or flight. Raising awareness of these situations may also help women avoid them. Home safety is another topic covered in the class. Many homeowners have security systems in place but unfortunately they are seldom activated. Even without a security system, there are other steps homeowners can take to help protect against break-ins.
