Pepper Spray for Self-Defense


Pepper spray is a widespread self-defense product used by both law enforcement and private citizens, but do you understand how to properly and safely use it for self-defense? In this informative class, Robert Ellsworth, corrections deputy for the Whatcom County Sheriff's Office, will cover how to select an appropriate spray for your purposes, and how to retrieve and deploy your pepper spray in a compromised position, all while using real-world scenarios to give you a chance to practice in a safe environment. Bring a sack lunch and wear comfortable clothes. Real pepper spray will not be used in class.
