Systems Training Center all women’s rape prevention seminar made TV, as Marcus Kowal taught a group of women, who made the trip to the Hawthorne Gym to learn how to defend themselves.
The seminar was a success and there have already been several requests for more women’s self-defense classes. The message that all the women left with? Go home safe, no matter what.
