LCPD self defense

The Lincoln City Police Department will hold a two-day self defense class for women 16 and older March 16-17 at the Lincoln City Community Center.

The first day will feature classroom discussion on how to avoid being a victim. Topics such as personal safety, home security, vehicle security, weapons use, rape and sexual assault and reporting crimes will be discussed.

Participants will learn various punches, strikes and kicks, as well as distraction techniques to help escape if grabbed in various holds. Attendees will also be taught some basic techniques on how to get away from an attacker while on the ground.

Lessons learned will be applied on the second day, with a minimum of three scenarios that progress with “a bad guy” in protective gear. Attendees are also suited in protective gear.

The class is designed to help prevent women from being targets and help former victims of rape or assault gain confidence. It emphases the empowerment of women to prove to themselves they don’t have to be victimized.
