Teachers learn martial arts for defense

Posted: Updated:

Thousands of gun advocates gathered peacefully at state capitals across the U.S. Saturday to rally against stricter limits on firearms.

Those rallies are in response to President Barack Obama's federal gun-control proposals this past week which was in response to last month's deadly school shootings in Connecticut.

The size of crowds at each location varied.

Activists promoted the "Guns Across America" rallies primarily through social media. 

Since then protecting schools has been at the heart of the debate over gun control.

But, some say there's another option to keeping places of learning safe.

Some teachers in our area are learning Martial Arts for defense.

The "Safer Campus Now Workshop" will be held on February 2nd at the West Gastonia Boys and Girls Club.
