Have you ever thought, “One day, I’m going to take a self-defense class?” Well, here’s your chance.

In observation of National Domestic Violence Awareness Month and to benefit the Advocate Safe House, self-defense expert and creator of Fight Like A Girl, Kym Rock, is hosting free women’s self-defense seminars at James Lee’s karate schools in Eagle and Glenwood Springs.

The next seminars is Monday, Nov. 9, at 6:30 p.m. at 2826 South Glen Ave. in Glenwood Springs.

As a seven-time world karate champion, Rock knows her way around self-defense, but what she discovered was that most moves and techniques are tailored to the height and upper body strength of men. As a former victim herself, Rock developed common-sense ways for women and girls to get away from a menace or out of dangerous situations using strengths that specifically favor women.

Call 947-9060 to register for the seminar or a free class and for more details.
