Worried about staying safe when you go for a run?
Spark Fitness Club, located at the north end of the Pfluger Pedestrian Bridge, will offer a self-defense class at 9 a.m. Saturday.
Brazilian Jiujitsu instructor Ben Himes will teach the session, which is designed to help women prevent and escape from physical assaults.
The seminar is free to all Spark members and guests. To reserve a spot, call (512) 432-5800.
The gym is located at 111 Sandra Muraida Way, Suite 100. That’s across the street from Luke’s Locker, and close to the Butler Hike and Bike Trail around Lady Bird Lake.
More classes are planned in the future.
