Basic self-defense techniques will be demonstrated with opportunity for practice. Even if you’ve taken this class before, it is always to your benefit to refresh or practice your self-defense skills. Class instructors will be TPD Chief Matt Johnson and Officer Matt Maestas.

This class will be held on Saturday April 23 from 9:00am-4:00pm and the cost is $40.

To register for this class or others, contact the EWC Community Education office at 307.532.8323 or stop by to visit them in the CTEC building at 3200 West C Street in Torrington.
