FORT MYERS, Fla. (Oct. 10, 2016) – The Fort Myers Police Department’s Citizen Police Academy Alumni Association will host a self-defense class fundraiser in November.

At 6 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 11, Master David and Grand Master Noah Guak of United Martial Arts School will host CPAAA members and the public for a one-hour self-defense class.

The event is open to the public, and the cost to attend is $25 per person. Advance reservations are required by emailing or calling 239-989-9956.

All funds raised will go toward support of Fort Myers Police Department personnel and programs.

United Martial Arts is located at 2500 Crystal Drive in Fort Myers and specializes in Ko Am Mu Do and Hap Ki Do as well as Tae Kwon Do and weapons training.

During the class, participants will learn how to be aware of dangerous situations before they happen and to leave feeling safer and confident in defending themselves.

“We all need to be aware of our surroundings, whether we’re walking to our car or entering our homes,” said Guak. “This fundraiser will help attendees learn how to spot and avoid danger while at the same time raise important funds for our local police officers who protect us every day.”

Fort Myers’ CPAAA is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization committed to bringing together the graduates of the Fort Myers Citizen’s Police Academy to enhance relations between the community and the Fort Myers Police Department, and to provide other assistance and support to the police department and its families whenever possible. Membership is $25 per person annually, and all past FMPD Citizen Police Academy class members are invited to join.

The association meets the fourth Tuesday of each month at 6:30 p.m. at 4312 Michigan Avenue in Fort Myers.
