The Spokane Police Department will offer two women’s self-defense classes this fall, free of charge.

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 no charge for this class.

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. There is no charge for this class.

Level One will be held October 2nd, 6 – 10 p.m. and again on October 16th, 6 – 10 p.m.

Level Two will be held October 30th,  6 – 10 p.m.
