How do I protect myself when de-escalation techniques fail? What tactics can I use to help protect myself from harm?

Learn the answers to these questions by attending this 6 hour training. Krista Sheehy and Rene Bartlett from Pierce Transit’s Bus Safety & Training Department will help navigate you through the do’s and don’ts of self- defense and the physical tactics available in helping defend yourself from the seated position. This class is a combination of informational lecture as well as student participation with hands-on striking and practical application on coaches.
