Laurie Gregory, the defensive tactics supervisor for the Federal Probations Office, is a certified instructor and will be in charge of teaching the moves to students.
At the end of the session, students will get the chance to practice what they've learned on a faculty member. Ron Laffitte, director of student activities, has volunteered to be the punching bag for the evening.
The self-defense workshop will begin at 6 p.m. in the UC Crest Room. Everyone is encouraged to attend in an effort to make the university experience safer.
