UFPD offers self-defense program

The S.A.F.E. (Self-Defense Awareness and Familiarization Exchange) program is taught by a nationally certified instructor who is dedicated to helping members of the community become more aware of and better familiar with basic self-defense concepts.

The free course is a two-hour class geared toward adult and teenage women. The class starts with a short introduction video, then progresses into a one-and-a-half-hour physical self-defense familiarization presentation. Enrollment is limited to ensure the highest level of quality instruction. Classes will be held this spring at the following times:

  • Wednesday, April 11, at 6 p.m.
  • Monday, April 30, at 6 p.m.
  • Monday, May 14, at 6 p.m.

All classes will be held at the UFPD – Community Services Division classroom (Building 596), located at the corner of Museum Road and Newell Drive.
