SELF-DEFENSE COURSE OFFERED BY THE GREENWICH POLICE DEPARTMENT

The Greenwich Police Department is sponsoring a free five week self-defense course as part of the Special Victims Section’s proactive approach in helping residents become prepared to thwart an assailant. The course’s target demographic group is females who reside or are employed in the Town of Greenwich. The course is given each Tuesday and Thursday, and each session is 90 minutes long. The course enrollment is limited to 30 participants who will be broken into two separate 15 person training groups.

The class will be administered by Greenwich Police Officers utilizing the core principle of modern female self-defense programs which emphasis situational awareness, how to handle confrontations, but most of all how to protect yourself physically from a larger and stronger attacker. The Officers conducting the class are trained in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and have been certified as instructors by the Gracie Combative Military and Law Enforcement Academy. Course participants will be learning maneuvers and techniques of this proven martial art.

Dates: April 2 thru April 30th
Times: Group One 6:00 PM
Group Two 7:30 PM

If interested, please contact Sergeant Mark Zuccerella at 203-618-8347 or at mzuccerella@greenwichct.org2, before March 26, 2013.

[1 -Tentatively, the department is planning on holding another course for an older demographic group in the Fall 2013.]
