Free Self-Defense Workshop This Thursday

The Chinese Information & Service Center is holding another workshop in the hopes of educating local women on how to protect themselves from the still-on-the-loose sexual assailant who's attacked 23 women on Beacon Hill and elsewhere in South Seattle.


Paraphrase from the Big Blog and Seattlest and the Beacon Hill mailing list, etc., etc.:

The Chinese Information & Service Center is hosting a Sexual Assault Survival Skill and Self Defense Workshop on Thursday, April 10. The workshop will offer information on what to do if you're attacked and personal safety tips to avoid trouble. It will begin at 6:30 p.m. at the Chinese Information & Service Center, 611 S. Lane St., in Seattle. It's free. Those attending should wear comfortable clothing. To RSVP, call Alan Lai at (206) 624-5633, x4111.

If anyone attends one of these workshops, please report back on what you learn. If they teach you any "unladylike karate chops," I might just sign up next time.
