A free women's self-defense class will take place Sept. 26 from 6 to 8 p.m. at Kimpton Middle School, 380 N. River Road in Munroe Falls.

The class is sponsored by Summit County Prosecutor Sherri Bevan Walsh and Lt. Chad Cunningham of the University of Akron Police Department.

The class will include techniques that could save a life: Verbal techniques; freeing yourself from a chokehold; learning the wrist breakaway; escaping if pinned to the ground; and practicing kicks and slaps.
