Basic Self-Defense for Women
WOMEN, LADIES, GIRLS: take responsibility for preparing yourself in the event of a crime—the more prepared you are, the less likely you will need to defend yourself.

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 instructor Officer Reed has updated the class curriculum to include the use of pressure points as a self-defense technique.

EWC Highlights Upcoming Community Education American Sign Language class

The Community Education office at Eastern Wyoming College in Torrington is offering an Introduction to American Sign Language class. This class will be held on Tuesdays, April 3 through May 1, 2018 from 6:30-8:00 pm in CTEC 210 and the cost is $40.

American Sign Language (ASL) is a natural language that serves as the predominant sign language of deaf communities in the United States and most of Anglophone Canada.

EWC student, Jaxon Heyrend, is excited about sharing his knowledge of American Sign Language. He has planned some creative and innovative activities to make learning this language fun for everyone.

In this four week class Jaxson will cover alphabet, numbers, basic phrases, basic nouns and some verbs, as well as information about the “deaf culture”.

Parents and grandparents, sign language is a great way for you to communicate with your little one because babies’ understanding of language and motor skills develop much faster than their ability to speak. Learning signs such a drink, food, hot, and more may lead to less frustration and tears.
