West Bridgewater

Women’s self-defense class


Two police officers from Bridgewater who are also martial arts experts are conducting a four-week self-defense class for women in conjunction with the West Bridgewater Police Department and the public schools. Bridgewater Sergeant Carl MacDermott, a 6th-degree black belt in Tang Soo Do, and Officer Scot Hile, of Precision Tang Soo Do in Bridgewater, will conduct the class, open to women 13 and older, at the Howard School, 70 Howard St. The classes, which have been described as “high-energy” and “hands-on,” will be held from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. on four Sundays: Oct. 27, and Nov. 3, 10, and 17. The $35 requested donation for all four classes benefits the West Bridgewater DARE Program. Those interested in signing up can do so at the police department, 99 West Center St. Those seeking more information can contact Police Officer Ken Thaxter at
