QUINCY, Mass. (WHDH) – A martial arts school in Quincy is taking action in response to violent attacks on Asian women, including a kidnapping at the Wollaston T-Stop.
Studio Wah Lum in Quincy offered a free self-defense class to the community on Sunday afternoon. From 3pm to 6pm people of all ages and abilities came to practice new skills.
School owner and chief instructor Mai Du said the main goal of the training is to mentally prepare people for dangerous situations.
“The more you practice, the more you practice, obviously it helps to find a more familiar situation and because of that you feel like you can mentally and emotionally collect yourself faster and then act,” Du said. “Exercise helps with that, just like anything else, if we train and practice a lot, it just gets easier.”
Another free training course will be held Wednesday at the Metropolitan Community Room on Oak Street in Chinatown, this time in partnership with the Asian Community Development Center.
