Self-defense course offered


Police will conduct a self-defense course for women starting in March. The popular Rape Agression Defense class, which is for women only, includes classroom instruction and hands-on exercises, and covers prevention, risk reduction, and the basics of self-defense. Students practice by actively striking at the suited instructors, “a vital part of the class,” according to the police website. The course consists of four classes held at Blackburn Hall from 6 to 9 p.m., on March 3, 10, 24, and 31. For more information or to register, contact the Walpole Recreation Department at 508-660-7353 or
