An free self defense class will be held at the Northern Blair Rec Center on Sunday, September 20 from 2-4 pm. 

Instructor Nicholas Diehl says that the class will be geared toward people of all ages and abilities.

There is no required dress, but attendees are encouraged to come in everyday clothes.

“I want people to know how your everyday clothing can limit you during a confrontation,” said  Diehl.

According to Diehl, unlike some other self defense classes, his method teaches moves that will work on everyone.

“I’ll be teaching moves that will work as well on a trained fighter as they will on someone without training,” noted Diehl.

The class is free, but donations will be accepted.

“The donations will help with the cost of purchasing new equipment to use in my other classes,” said Diehl.
