A local gym and martial arts academy says knowing how to defend yourself in harmful or dangerous situations is essential.

Conan's Academy instructors joined News 9 and the Coca-Cola Southwest Beverages Porch to show how to be physically prepared in potentially threatening situations.

Kickboxing instructor Mic and student Tiarra explained why it is crucial to be able to defend yourself in dangerous scenarios.

"Everything's unpredictable, everybody's at a point to where they have to be able to protect themselves," Tiarra said.

The students in the self-defense classes that are offered at Conan's Academy range from all ages.

Tiarra said if someone grabs you, you need to secure their hand, step forward, step away, and distance yourself from the person.

"Whenever you turn around, kicking their groin, knee, leg, do a palm strike, and then just run away," Tiarra said.

The classes also invite those who have disabilities to participate in various courses that teach self-defense tactics.
