Self Defense Self Defense

Women are learning how to defend themselves. 

This Saturday, September 23, at 5 pm at the Judy Bonds Center, women are being taught the basics of self defense. They will learn proper handgun handling and safety, hand to hand defense and how to use pepper spray. Marsha Lesko has been a self defense instructor for many years; and her interest for it started when she was young. 

"At the age of 12 I was shot at on my way to school, so my dad kept me working with guns so I wouldn't be afraid so it became a hobby for me but as it became a hobby I have learned we need to be safe." Owner of Iron Eagle Fire Arms Training, Marsha Lesko, said. 

The class for this weekend is sold out, but they're planning to have more in the area soon. You can contact Marsha Lesko at ironeaglefirearmstraining.com for more information.
