The Swatara Karate Academy is hosting a FREE Self Defense Class for women on Saturday May 14th from 10am-12pm at the Swatara Township Municipal building. This beginners class will focus on maneuvers that would surprise or stun an attacker, and provide an opportunity for the victim to get to a place of safety. There is no cost or registration for this event, however space is limited. The instructional portion will take place from 10am to 11:30am. From 11:30am to 12pm members from the Swatara Township Police Department and from the Dauphin County District Attorney’s Office will be discussing situations where self defense would be applicable. Participants will also be allotted time to ask questions. If you plan on attending this event we ask that you wear comfortable clothing and athletic shoes/sneakers. This class is open to both Swatara residents and non-residents. Doors to the township building will open at 9:30am this Saturday. If you have any questions please contact Cpl.
