Released by Panhandle State Campus Communications on 04/18/2017

Goodwell, Okla. — April is Sexual Assault Awareness month and Oklahoma Panhandle State University HALO (Hispanic American Leadership Organization) is sponsoring a self-defense class on Thursday, April 20 at 7 p.m. at the YMCA in Guymon, Okla.

Goodwell Chief of Police Andy Ramirez teaches this hands-on course utilizing the S.P.E.A.R. System (Spontaneous Protection Enabling Accelerated Response). This system uses the body's natural flinches and reactions to fear or violence and then converts these reactions into efficient tactical choices. Chief Ramirez will give safety tips regarding the recognition and avoidance of a harmful situation in addition to protective tactics. He will discuss how to step in and speak up.

The class is free and open to the public. The YMCA is located at 1602 North Oklahoma Street. For more information, contact Andy Ramirez at 580-349-2566 or gdwlpd164@gmail.com.
