The Summit Police Department is offering a self-defense class for girls ages 11 to 15 on Thursday, October 12, from 6PM to 8PM. The class will be taught by Summit Police Department officers and held in the Lawton C. Johnson Summit Middle School gymnasium, located at 272 Morris Avenue.
The self-defense class will provide valuable information for girls on how to stay safe and protect themselves in dangerous situations. Participants will learn practical self-defense techniques that can be used in real-life scenarios. The classes are designed for all fitness levels.
"We continue to be encouraged by the interest from the community in these self-defense classes,” says Summit Police Chief Steven Zagorski. “The department has received numerous requests for additional sessions for all age groups, and we hope young women will find this class useful. Our goal is to provide them with practical techniques and skills they can use to protect themselves for years to come.”
