Kick back at the night: free self-defense classes for women

Reading about some of the nasty attacks against women in the Slope lately can make you nostalgic for when all you worried about was containing sidewalk stroller rage, especially when the cops don’t seem to be much help. But thanks to the internet and People Who Actually Give a Damn, you can do something about it! FiPS reports that after an online petition, Councilwoman Sara González is pairing with non-profit Center for Anti-Violence Education and fitness program Crossfit718 to provide free self-defense classes for women starting tomorrow.

Classes with CrossFit718 (712 5th Avenue) begin Saturday at 1pm . Space is limited so call CrossFit at 718.768.0090 to reserve a space.

Classes with the Center for Anti-Violence Education begin Sept. 20 at 6pm at PS10 (511 Seventh Ave.)

In the meantime, FiPS says you can contact the Office of Councilwoman Sara M. González at 718.439.9012 or with any questions or for a complete calendar of free classes.
