Self-Defense Classes for Women

They're teaching women how to defend themselves against possible attackers at the Savannah Rape Crisis Center, where about 30 women began self-defense classes last night. The organization is starting its series of classes again this year, in hopes of keeping women from becoming victims.

"We teach simple things anyone can do," explained Leslie Cannady of the Rape Crisis Center. "It's not a whole lot of in-depth stuff. It's, 'What's free? Where can I strike?' We have the intention of hurting somebody and getting out of there."

If you are interested in joining a similar class, you can call the Rape Crisis Center at 888.241.7273 for more information.
