INDIANAPOLIS — We hope it never happens, but if you’re in a situation where you need to defend yourself, would you be prepared?

Bud Lich of The Shooting Institute showed Indy Now Host Jillian Deam two basic self-defense moves to escape an assailant.

Lich is Black Belt in Kenpo Karate who teaches self defense for the Central Indiana Police Foundation (CIPF), formerly the Indianapolis Police Foundation.

He was joined by Carolyn Goldenetz of Damsel in Defense, who showed us two safety products that share your GPS location with five contacts when activated in an emergency.

The first is pepper spray that automatically notifies your contacts and shares your location when it’s used, and the second is a keychain device that offers both a 120-decibal alarm and a silent alarm.

The next CIPF self-defense class, held in partnership with the Plainfield Police Department, is Monday, July 25 from from 6-8 p.m. at Plainfield High School. Registration is $75.

The class is open to all ages and genders, and Goldenetz will also be on site that evening.
