The Spokane Police Department offers the Enhancing the Survival Mindset (ESM) women’s self-defense class, this coming Thursday, April 9, 2015, from 6-10 p.m. ESM offers participants hands-on self-defense and safety awareness training by Spokane Police officers.

The Enhancing the Survival Mindset Level 1 course offers participants the opportunity to learn the basics of self-defense. The course consists of a classroom portion where participants will receive information on crime statistics, situational awareness, and information on enhancing their survival mindset. Hands-on training introduces participants to defensive tactics techniques and places participants into realistic threat scenarios. A participant’s survival mindset will determine the outcome of these scenarios. Attendees must be at least 17 years old with an adult family member present to participate. There is a $35 charge to cover the costs associated with the class. 

ESM Level 1 will be held on April 9, from 6-10 p.m. Another ESM Level 1 class will be held on April 23, also from 6-10 p.m.

Enhancing the Mindset Level 2 is the next step in the reinforcement and development of the survival mindset. Participants are exposed to approximately six new threat scenarios that will enhance your schemas for real life survival. Attendees must be at least 17 years old to participate and must have completed Level One. 

ESM Level 2 will be held on May 7, from 6-10 p.m.
