Letter: Kudos to Dickinson area officers for confidence-boosting course
I have just completed the six-hour self-defense class offered through Dickinson Training Solution and I must commend officers Kylan Klauzer and Joe Cianni.
They really put their hearts into this class, also a lot of time and planning. Not only do they talk about awareness, tips on survival and self-defense weapons, but include self-defense moves which certainly will help getting yourself out of a bad situation and possibly saving your life.
Plus, a bonus of a real life scenario in which you defend yourself using the moves just learned.
This really boosts your confidence, knowing that the moves really do work and you are able to get out of almost any hold the perpetrator is using.
It was amazing that the holds of a much stronger person could be broke!
I really recommend taking this class, especially for women who want to be able to protect and defend themselves in an event of an assault or abduction.
Employers — what a wonderful gift to provide this class to your employees, knowing that they are safer leaving the workplace at the end of their shift.
I would like to thank the officers conducting this class. I honestly hope I am never in a situation where I have to use the self-defense moves, but I certainly feel confident that if I have to, I can, I will, and I know how to defend myself.
Thanks for the peace of mind.
Jackie Lefor, Dickinson
