Adams County Sheriff’s Office will be offering self-defense classes

NATCHEZ — The Adams County Sheriff’s Office is looking for a few good women, and men, who want to participate in a free 10-week self-defense, martial arts and shooting class.

The courses begin at 6 p.m. Wednesday in the Adams County Louis Gunning Safe Room at 323 Liberty Road and will continue from 6 to 8 p.m. every Wednesday for 10 weeks.

Adams County Sheriff Travis Patten said the training is free to anyone, men and women, with no age limit who would like to participate.

The first five-weeks, Feb. 19 through March 18, will focus on martial arts and self defense and the second five weeks, March 25 through April 22, will be firearm safety and training to be held at the Adams County Sheriff’s Office Range, 200 Foster Mound Road.

“They are not required to do both portions of it,” Patten said. “They can do the five weeks of self defense, or they can do the five weeks of fire arms or they can choose to do both. We still have slots open. I’m trying to get people signed up for it.”

Applications are available at the Adams County Sheriff’s Office, 306 State Street, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. Classes are limited to 20 participants.

“This is something we are putting out there free to the community, and we are trying to get men and women to sign up for it,” Patten said. “In the past it was only women we were training but now we say men need it too. So we are trying to get men and women to sign up for this class to take it because we’ve got 35 instructors and there are no age requirements on this.”
