Women’s Self-Defense Classes Offered

Two women's self-defense classes have been scheduled. The first will be held from 2 until 4 p.m. this Sunday, Nov. 7 in the group activities room at the Field House (upstairs in the gym).

The second class will be held from 2 until 4 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 21 in the group activities room at the Field House. Both sessions are introductory classes, where basic important moves will be taught.

The classes will be taught by Bernadette van der Vliet who is a third-degree black belt. Women should wear comfortable clothes and sneakers, but bring with them whatever they would normally carry around campus, i.e. purse, keys, book bag. And they can bring what ever shoes they normally wear as well.

These classes are primarily for students. A faculty/staff class is being planned for December.

These programs are being offered by the Women’s Community House and the Women’s Collective. Please contact Kara Papin or Leanne Roncolato if you are interested in attending, so they can get a sense of how many people will attend.
