The debate over arming teachers rages on, but one self-defense instructor in Connecticut is offering them free lessons instead. Jared Weiner, owner of Anytime Fitness in Colchester is teaching Krav Maga, which focuses on hand-to-hand training, to teachers at no charge.
Weiner was inspired to help after the recent school shootings, so he decided to take the skills he has and give them away to teachers. “It’s hide, run, fight,” he explains. “If you get to the point where it’s fight, I want you to have some skills.”
