Additionally, during community association meetings, neighbors are able to voice concerns regarding safety.

During the class, an instructor works through scenarios to escape an attacker through a variety of maneuvers to break someone’s grip.  There’s also advice given to participants on how to stay alert and aware of their surroundings.
