The folks at South Austin ATA Martial Arts want to help, too. They’re inviting the public to their day of free self defense workshops on March 5.
A “Stranger Danger” self defense class for kids is set for 10:15-11 a.m. An hour-long self defense workshop for ages 13 and up will start at noon. A constable will also fingerprint kids for free from 9:30-10:30 a.m.
