According to the Courier, Williams will teach runners about how to handle surprise attacks. They’ll learn what to lookout for, how to break a grip and how to stage a counter attack on an assailant. Simply put, this one-hour session teaches you the safety techniques and tips to help you protect yourself in a dangerous situation.
The workshop is open to runners of all skill levels. It starts at 6 p.m. with a group run hosted by Williams, followed by the self-defense course. The cost of attendance is $10 and space is limited to 40 participants. Each student will receive a $10 gift certificate to the Runner’s Flat.
Williams — who also holds a black belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu — started RunSafer because “time and Time again we read headlines about runners, joggers, and walkers being assaulted while out exercising,” the website states.
Call The Runner’s Flat at 277-1154 to register for the upcoming class.
