Warlord MMA and Fitness — a Big Spring, Texas-based fitness and personal training center — is offering a free women’s self-defense class on August 23.
According to KWES, Warlord MMA and Fitness founder Nathan Torres was born and raised in Big Spring, and he’s seen the population increase along with the crime rate. He opened his gym two years ago. Now, to help women feel safe, he’s decided to offer the free class.
“Basically I felt obligated to do this for the community,” Torres said.
As KWES reports, Torres will teach women self-defense techniques and he’ll show them jiu jitsu and MMA.
“I’m going to teach them how to get away if it comes down to that situation. If they have a hold of their hair or their arm, basically how they can get away and survive,” Torres said.
Torres says this class is all about instilling confidence in women when encountering dangerous situations.
“I want to show my community I’m here to help them. Come in and let me give you some self confidence so you don’t have to be afraid. It’s ridiculous how many women I hear say that they are afraid to go to sleep at night. That they are afraid to park somewhere, afraid of the person walking by their car. Come in here and get some self confidence and lets do a little work,” Torres said.
Sign up for the class by going to Warlord MMA and Fitness’ Facebook page.
