Four-part Self Defense class for children runs in June

HandsChildren can learn simple, effective techniques to be safer in the Tecumseh Public Library’s upcoming summer series “Self Defense for Children,” at 2 p.m. on Mondays during June.

Instructors from Synergy Defense and Fitness of Shawnee will lead the classes, teaching children basic skills for self-defense through several realistic training scenarios.

The class is for ages 6 to 11. Space is limited, so registration is required in advance to participate.

Financial assistance for this special series is made possible with federal funds from the Institute of Museum and Library Services administered through the Oklahoma Department of Libraries, part of the Health Literacy Grant.
