The class is taught by former first responder Malinda Malone who teaches students how to prepare for active violence, which includes role playing and adapting to various circumstances, according to a press release.
The class also teaches the fundamentals on possible actions one may need to take, either alone or as a part of a group, the release states.
Ms. Malone says the class will teach effective strategies to improve your chances of survival, and how to adapt one’s response if active violence occurs.
