Free Self-Defense Training Offered by Delaware County SART

Are you interested in learning self-defense?

The Delaware County Sexual Assault Response Team (SART) is hosting two classes this week for free. Jill Knipper, who is a deputy for the Sheriff’s Office, says the first class starts tonight.

The classes will be held from 7 to 8 pm tonight and 6 to 8 pm Wednesday night at Maquoketa Valley High School Gym in Delhi. Certified personal trainer and Black Belt Bruce Troyer will instruct the training both nights. Brandi Lewin, the Sexual Assault Response Team Coordinator at the Riverview Center, says anyone is welcome to take the self-defense training, but it would especially benefit middle school students up through adults.

Once again, the classes are free. If you are interested in the self-defense training tonight or Wednesday night, you can just show up at Maquoketa Valley High School Gym or you can call 608-3595.
