One of Flower Mound’s most popular classes is now open for residents to register, but those interested in the self-defense class will need to hurry to get a spot.
The Flower Mound Police Department is offering a free Sexual Harassment and Rape Prevention (SHARP) self-defense course on April 7 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Flower Mound Police Department, 4150 Kirkpatrick Lane.
SHARP training is founded on statistic-based research and focuses on what is real and what works, according to a town news release. By emphasizing the principal that less is best, SHARP material is kept simple so it is easy to learn and easy to retain and use. Focus is placed on identifying threatening behaviors and avoiding them while providing physical skills in case avoidance fails.
This class is free, and open to female residents of Flower Mound and female members of the business community who are 18 years old or older. Girls 13 and older may participate if accompanied by a female adult member of their immediate family.
FMPD offers this course a handful of times each year, and it usually fills up fast. Last time, the class filled up overnight.
