Island women attend self defense class

With the increase in violence towards girls and women, especially after the tragic death of Jasmine Lowe in the Cayo District, there has been a significant rally to prepare and prevent such incidents from reoccurring. With “safety first” in mind, a group of women came together for a lesson in self-defense taught by instructor Renee Wentz.

Two groups of a total of over forty women learned various techniques which included defending against chokes, strangulation, suffocation, weapons (knives, machetes and guns), and more. Wentz also taught attendees about street safety, observational skills, using voice as a weapon and attack prevention. Women from all walks of life, from the littlest at five years old, to teenagers and their mothers/aunts/friends, learned valuable skills with enthusiasm.
