SIKESTON, MO (KFVS) - Members of the Sikeston Department of Public Safety are hosting a free Women’s self-defense course at our Public Safety Headquarters located at 201 S. Kingshighway Sikeston, Mo.
The class date is set for April 20 beginning at 10 a.m. and lasting until 1 p.m.
Accordind to DPS, they will be expanding the class size to 100 attendees due to the overwhelming response they received.
DPS says the class will predominately be a lecture on raising awareness with some demonstration of basic strategies of self-defense.
Other topics to be covered but not limited to:
