The course is FREE,
but you MUST pre-register.
call the Regional police Academy (816-413-3500) to register.
"The focus of the training is on the importance of awareness, prevention, streetwise precaution and most importantly, self-defense. This training is both lecture and hands-on. Physical activity is encouraged, but not required. During the hands-on portion of this training, you will literally be “hands on”. Many women have found that signing up with a friend makes this portion of the training a bit more comfortable.
Participants are asked to wear athletic type clothing, with no buttons or zippers. Socks and long sleeve shirts are required. Participants are encouraged to bring a water bottle and a light snack.
Enrollment is open to females 13 years of age or older; however, anyone under the age of 17 must be accompanied by an adult.
This course is limited to 50 participants."
If you can't make this out keep your eye out for another chance at the beginning of June.
