Defending Yourself

Self defense classes are becoming a popular resource, especially for women.
Dallas, Luzerne County -- Crime can happen to anyone at anytime.

That's why self defense classes are becoming a popular resource, especially for women.

One out of every six American women has been the victim of an attempted or completed rape in her lifetime. That's according to the Rape, Abuse, and Incest National Network, but those numbers could be even higher, because an estimated 60% of sexual assaults are not reported to police.

Back Mountain Martial Arts in Dallas offers a self defense course for women every Wednesday.

The women learn simple moves that can stop an attacker, whether the person grabs their wrists, or pulls their shoulders from behind.
