Clear Fork High School students and staff participated in self defense classes provided by Shawn Chitwood of Team Chitwood Martial Arts and Fitness. Instruction was provided to over 100 students and staff. The 2 sessions lasted approximately 80 minutes each. The class was precipitated by a request from several female students wanting to receive instruction in self defense after watching a human trafficking video. Clear Fork High School has focused on student safety this year especially in light of the danger and availability of heroin and the recruitment of our youth through drugs and the internet. It is our hope that individuals will feel empowered to protect themselves and maybe others using these self defense tools and being aware of their environments.
Special Thanks to Shawn Chitwood for the donation of his time and expertise.
