The class is called Women’s Awareness and Response (W.A.R).  It will instruct the student on the basic format of how to escape and evade. The student will also be taught basic tools/weapons, confident body posture, situational awareness, shielding, points of impact, break a ways, situational encounters, parking lot encounters, and vehicle encounters.  The La Vergne Police Department Instructors have to re-certify every two years.  This certification ensures that all tactics are up to date.
