The Spokane Police Department is offering the Enhancing the Survival Mindset (ESM) women’s self-defense class again this fall. 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 scenarios. A participant's survival mindset will determine the outcome of these scenarios. Attendees must be at least middle school aged (allowed when accompanied by a guardian) or older to participate. There is a $25 charge to cover the costs associated with the class. There are scholarships available for those who need financial assistance.
