Rep. Batinick, Troy Township to Host Women’s Self-Defense Class in Shorewood

SHOREWOOD–State Representative Mark Batinick (R-Plainfield) in partnership with Troy Township will host a Women’s Self-Defense class for women and girls from 6:00pm – 9:00pm on Thursday, August 17 at the Troy Township Community Center, located at 25448 Seil Road in Shorewood.   The special class on Self-Defense, Distraction and Awareness Tactics helps women to stay safe at all times. The class is free and open to women and girls, suggested ages 10 and up.  

“I hosted a series of women’s self-defense classes throughout our district last year, at which hundreds of local women and girls successfully participated,” Rep. Batinick said. “This class is a valuable resource for our wives, mothers, sisters, daughters, and friends to learn how to keep themselves safe should their safety be threatened. We are excited to partner with Troy Township to offer this class to women in Shorewood.”  

While participation in the class is free of charge, donations are welcome and will go to help Women at Risk, International (WAR, Int’l) for their fight against human trafficking, rehabilitating victims and giving a voice to the silent cries of the oppressed.
