Junior Women’s Self Defense Class

Saturday, July 15, 2017

The Lilburn Police Department's Junior Women’s Self Defense Class is perfect for any young woman entering high school or college.

This class is geared towards young women who are interested in arming themselves with the tools and knowledge to potentially prevent an attack or defend themselves in the event of one. It will cover personal security, situational awareness, potential threats and ploys used by predators, physical skills, and when to use those skills appropriately.

The first portion of the class will discuss various forms of safety:  general, dating, campus, and internet safety, before learning physical defense moves like strikes, blocks, and pressure points. The second portion of the class will pair up students and have them work together on a variety of movements as well as working against the instructors. The instructors will then don protective gear and simulate a threatening encounter, which will allow students to practice their learned moves. This part of the course has been described as “physical but amazing and empowering.”

The class will last approximately eight (8) hours, including a one-hour lunch break.
The class is recommended for all high school and college girls age 15 – 20 who are residents of Lilburn.  We encourage you to bring a friend or mother.  The only males allowed in this course will be the instructors.

If you're interested in attending the Junior Women's Self Defense Class please complete an application and waiver and mail it to Lilburn Police Dept., 76 Main Street NW,  Lilburn, GA 30047.
