TFCU offering self defense class

The Ticonderoga Federal Credit Union (TFCU) will host a Self Defense Class, led by Murray’s Family Martial Arts Center Instructors, at 6:30 p.m. on August 13 at the Best Western Plus in Ticonderoga.

Attendees will learn a modern approach to today’s personal protection needs using awareness and prevention techniques. Attendees will learn joint locks and manipulation, release from wrist grabs, and punch and kick defense mechanisms.

All are welcome, though the class will focus on women’s concerns. Please wear comfortable attire. The class is free, however, cash donations and toiletry items such as soap, shampoo and toothpaste will be accepted at the event in support of local Stop Domestic Violence organizations.

Attendees must at least 14 years of age. Please bring a signed waiver with you to the event. Waiver forms are available online at the credit union’s website; www.tfcunow.com, as well as at all TFCU Branches. Participants under age 18 will need a parent or guardian to sign the waiver.

Please contact TFCU at 518-585-6725 or visit their website www.tfcunow.com for more information or to register online. Space is limited to 50 people, and pre-registration is required.
