Self defense classes offer more than protection
An opportunity to earn income was the main reason, Sophia Byrd said, she signed up for self defense classes. What she has learned in the last several weeks, though, has been priceless.
“Money wise, I had to do it,” Byrd said, explaining that she took the required course to prepare for her job as a security team member.
“But doing it was a relief from stress without hurting someone. It gave me knowledge of what I can do to protect myself without harming someone else.... It’s also a mental class. I’ve learned patience, stability, and awareness.”
