Self-Defense in Europe

In December 2014, self-defense courses conducted by local police departments were offered to female employees at our locations in Santander, Spain and Hanover, Germany.

Topics included proper techniques for falls, protective actions and striking an attacker. Twelve women participated in the four-hour course, and the overall response was very positive.

“It was a good opportunity to learn how to act in dangerous situations,” said Noelia Domínguez (Spain). According to María González (Spain): “Everybody needs to do this training. It not only builds your confidence, but makes you feel safer, too.”
