COLLEGE STATION, Texas (KBTX) - In the wake of two sexual assaults in Bryan, Brazos Valley Mixed Martial Arts says they’ve had concerned citizens reaching out about self-defense classes. The training facility is hoping they can provide a program that will help citizens feel safer.

They’ll be offering a free self-defense class to teach basic techniques to use if you need to defend yourself.

Brazos Valley Mixed Martial Arts coach Dmitri Westbrook says they have received an influx of calls and emails asking about classes since the beginning of November.

“The main focus is if you see yourself in an unsafe position what are some ways to get out and get yourself to safety or even get yourself in a safer position,” said Westbrook.

Bryan Police says the community should take advantage of the resources that businesses are offering to be more prepared.

“You never know when it could be useful, even if it’s something that you may not be interested in. Especially if you have an opportunity like that you may find a new hobby in it as well,” said Bryan Police Public Information Officer Kole Taylor

The class will be offered on Dec. 2 at 7:30 pm.
