The Plainfield Junior Woman’s Club will be sponsoring a self-defense course at Eich’s Sports in Plainfield on Sunday, October 20th, from 5pm until 7pm. The class is open to all ages.
This event is free to the public, but donations are appreciated. Any proceeds will be used to help local families, women and children.
Dybas Martial Arts and Chikara Martial Arts will lead the training. Participants will be broken into two groups: adults (13 and over) and children (12 and under).
PJWC decided to sponsor this event after a woman was attacked in Plainfield on October 8th. The female victim was walking on the sidewalk along 143rd Street between Meadow Lane and Route 30, when a man attacked her. He then fled the scene, and the woman was taken to a local hospital where she was treated and released. The suspect has yet to be found.
Eich’s Sports is located at 24316 W. 143rd Street in Plainfield. They are donating their space for the event.
