CHICO, Calif. - Azad’s Martial Arts Center hosted a personal safety workshop Saturday.

People learned how to chop and kick in the event of a home invasion, robbery or carjacking.

Students must sign up for the program and it’s two days of training.

This free event is held a couple times a year.

“I believe that there a few simple things that many people can do in our community to protect themselves. Before, they have to actually get involved in a personal safety self-defense situation. So we provided this course to empower our community,” said Grandmaster Azad, from Azad’s Martial Arts Center.

Master Azad says the classes are filled this weekend, but his studio will host another session in January.
