Skills that could save a life can be learned in half-hour classes that are being offered at BYU throughout the month of March.
These free self-defense/rape-defense classes are being taught by Evan Keller, a second-degree black belt in karate.
“The classes are short so they don’t confuse people, and they focus on the basics of self-defense,” said Wendi Keller, who attends the classes her husband teaches.
The classes are taught in two-day segments with three half-hour classes taught each day. Ideally, those interested would come to a one half-hour class each day.
“The knowledge women could learn in this class could save their lives some day, and it’s free,” Keller said. “It is a sad loss of a good opportunity for those who don’t come.”
Classes will be conducted March 4,5,11,12,18 and 19 in 3234 ELWC. The sessions are open to students and the general public. Classes start at 8, 8:30 and 9 p.m.
