Red Beard Defense invite women to attend sexual assault defense class

Red Beard Defense in Port Lavaca is inviting women age 14 and up to sign up for their sexual assault defense class.

The Jiu-Jitsu based defense class is a fourteen week course designed to teach women the ins and outs of self-defense.

Students will learn everything from basic techniques to proper use of deadly force.

Owner and former military instructor John-Michael Caraway says women who have taken his class have left with the knowledge and confidence to defend themselves in a dangerous situation.

“You see these people come in on day one, they have no idea what they’re doing. But, towards the end of it, their confidence is boosted and they feel better about themselves and you can totally tell that they hold their head up high because they’re proud of themselves when they complete the course.”

The first class is Monday, February 18th at 6:30 pm, at VFW Post 4403 in Port Lavaca.

It’s free to the public. Every class after the first will cost $20 to attend.
