Learn basic self-defense techniques, plus ways to avoid or escape assault, at a Self-Defense for Women class, held on July 8 and 15, from 7:15 to 9pm, at NM Fitness & Aquatics Club, in New Milford. You may attend one class or both, as different topics will be covered at each.

Topics covered in the class include: how to recognize and avoid potential threats; basic principles of self-defense and taking control; situational awareness and boundary setting; realities of physical assaults; attackers, predators and their behavior; techniques and strategies to self-defense; and physical self-defense drills and scenarios.
