Free self-defense course

The police department is sponsoring a five week self-defense course free of charge beginning July 24.

The class is offered as part of the Special Victim’s Section’s proactive approach to teaching residents how to stop an attacker. The intended demographic for the course is college aged women over the age of 18.

Greenwich police officers will teach the class using the central principles of modern self-defense programs which include emphasis on situational awareness, handling confrontations and how to protect oneself against physically larger and stronger attackers.

Officers administering the course are certified instructors trained in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. Class participants will learn techniques based on this effective martial art. The enrollment limit for the course is 30 participants, who will be broken into two even training groups which meet every Tuesday and Thursday for 90- minute sessions.

For more information contact Sgt. Mark Zuccerella at 203-618-8347 or via e-mail at [email protected] no later than July 16.
