Sporting goods store to provide free self-defense clinic | Business
Back in December a female runner out for a morning jog was attacked in Overton Park.
Police say a man tried to grab her then swung a rock wrapped in a sock or shirt at her.
She escaped to the Overton Park golf course and got help.
It wasn't the first time this has happened, police say the suspect had attacked two other runners.
The runner in this case fought back and one Memphis running store wants to make sure you have the tools to keep yourself safe out there too.
Next month on Tuesday, February 12, from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the Midtown Breakaway Running location across from Channel 5 will offer a free self defense clinic for runners.
Krav Maga is partnering with Breakaway to keep runners safe.
Given Valentines Day, there will also be a theme of "protect the one you love".
All runners and pedestrians and anyone who is interested is encouraged to attend to learn how to fight back and stay safe!
