Nicole Snell (right) and Kinesiology major Jefember Villela, demonstrate two parts of a three-part self- defense technique which Snell called the "bad-ass ballet".

Students were introduced to the basics of self-defense during Falcon Palooza. Nicole Snell, of “Students Fight Back,” was on campus on the evening of April 19 to teach students a few basic self-defense techniques. Snell, along with student volunteers Siham El-Bjeirmi and Jefember Villela, demonstrated how to not only fend off an attacker but also how to de-escalate a potentially harmful situation. Snell also spoke about the importance of serious matters such as consent and being aware of one’s self and surroundings.
