Hundreds Attend Free Self-Defense Class Hosted By RealSelf

In early March, RealSelf doctor advisor Kelly Herron was attacked by a known sex offender when she stopped during a run to use the bathroom at Golden Gardens, a popular park in Seattle’s Ballard neighborhood. Kelly fought back using training she learned at a self-defense course RealSelf had hosted just weeks before.

On Tuesday, RealSelf offered the same Fighting Chance Seattle self-defense class to the public for free.

Hundreds showed up to take part.

Participants learned to identify red flags, avoid dangerous situations, and unlock their most powerful selves. Fighting Chance Seattle instructor Jordan Giarratano taught the class, who was also the instructor for the first class hosted at RealSelf.

“Making it free removed a barrier, sad but true, that discouraged me from attending such a class in the past,” one attendee said. “Thank you for eliminating that excuse and for investing in us!”
