Woodstock residents who want to learn how to defend themselves will be able to do so in March.
The Woodstock Police Department will offer a free self-defence class to city residents from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday March 2 at Woodstock City Annex.
The class is taught in a partnership with the National Self Defense Company.
Space for the class limited and is filled on a first come, first serve basis. Students must be at least 14 years old to participate.
Also, all participants are required to sign a waiver and youth participants are required to have a waiver signed by their parent or guardian.
The two-hour course will give residents the chance to participate in one-on-one instruction in a controlled environment.
Anyone who wants to participate should contact Officer Leigh Ellerbee at (770) 592-6000 ext. 1134 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
