ORO VALLEY, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

The Oro Valley Police Department will host a free self-defense class for women next month.

Officials said the three-part Rape Aggression Defense class will help empower participants to fight back against crime with awareness, prevention and risk-avoidance.

Classes will take place at the Oro Valley Public Library at 1305 W. Naranja Road from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Feb. 6, Feb. 13 and Feb. 20.

The class is limited to 20 people. Minimum age for participation is 15 and participants must be able to attend all three sessions. Attendees should wear comfortable workout attire, as this is a physical class that includes punching and kicking.

To register, contact Sergeant Amy Graham at (520) 229-5080 or agraham@orovalleyaz.gov.
