Self-Defense Class Offered Through Fleet Feet Decatur and 9Round

From our friend Clay at Fleet Feet Decatur:

Do any of these ever apply to you?

a) Run early, b) Run late, c) Run alone, d) Feel a little weird about a person, car, situation when you are not running.

Typically, we push these thoughts to the back of our mind, but helping with personal safety is one of the most important things we can do.

Our nice friend, CJ Pascuzzo, who is the franchise owner of 9Round ATL-Decatur,  volunteered to set up a Saturday session on Self Defense with a self defense instructor and a Dekalb County police officer. It is a “scenario based” training approach. The class will be held on Saturday, July 12 at 2 pm at 9Round. 9Round is located next to the “big” Kroger at 2899-B North Decatur Rd, Decatur, GA 30030.

To offset the costs CJ needs $10 from you when you attend, but if you sign up in advance (this helps with planning too) you’ll get a $10 Gift Card to Fleet Feet Decatur so essentially it costs you nothing!
