A rash of sexual assaults has occurred around Austin lately, so I’ve been thinking about ways to stay safer when I hit the trails or ride my bike to work.

Austin police recently shared tips that include things like turning down the music and exercising in groups. Read more here.

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.
