Self defense instructors from the Israeli Krav Magen Association are offering training classes free of charge for those concerned about their safety in Jerusalem and other cities.
Eli Levshtein, a senior self defense instructor from the Association, said that "in light of the tense situation, and the fear that has gripped a large part of the public, the Israeli Krav Magen Association has begun a round of short workshops in self defense across Israel, with an aim to increase public security, and awareness of self defense." Levshtein added that the workshops are aimed at the general public, for both youths and adults, from across the country, and will be free of charge.
Workshops will begin in the coming days in cities and regions including Jerusalem, Ramat Gan, Rehovot, Ariel, Rosh Ha'ayin, Modi'in, Kfar Yona, Petah Tikva, Haifa, Carmiel, Hof Ashkelon, and other regions.
