Lake Land College offers Self-Defense class @ Lake Land College, Webb Hall, room 081
Aug 10 @ 9:00 am – 4:00 pm

Lake Land College will offer a one-day Self-Defense class from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Saturday, Aug. 10. The class will be held at Lake Land College in Webb Hall, room 081.

The 6-hour course, taught by Instructor Dwayne Beccue, is designed to educate students on the realities of what can happen to the body and mind in a fight against a violent attacker. It develops the ability to recognize, deter and de-escalate violence and manage fear. It will also train students on how to deal with violent situations should they become unavoidable. Regardless of age, size, strength and ability, students will build confidence while learning natural, simple and practical physical skills for self-defense.

“Using force in defense of yourself or others is a serious subject and should not be left to chance. Proper understanding of the law and how it is applied to self-defense is of utmost importance,” Beccue said. “Should the unthinkable happen and self-defense is necessary, it needs to be done in a manner that will not lead to legal trouble. This seminar is not legal advice, but simply gives the attendees a greater understanding of the law as it pertains to use of force and a practical way to apply and retain the information and knowledge.”

To register, go to lakelandcollege.edu/learn. The 6-hour course is available for registration at $40. The price will increase to $50 beginning July 1. The drop date for a refund is five business days prior to the class.
