BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - The Alliance hosted a self-defense class on Wednesday night, specifically geared towards children.
Some of those skills included escaping someone's grip, how to fight back if grabbed, and ways to knock a person down.
Organizers say it is important that children are prepared for anything, including potential kidnappers and school bullies.
The Alliance holds self defense classes for children about four times a year.
They also host self-defense classes for women once a month.
