A Carbondale martial arts instructor offered a chance for people to learn how to defend themselves in an active shooter situation.

Carbondale Marshal Arts and Fitness hosted the class Saturday.

Participants learned techniques and defensive moves to ward off would-be attackers.

Some say it's better to have the knowledge even if you never use it.

“There are very easy things that you can do to defend yourself, defend others, or escape the situation. Just having that knowledge could help save a lot of people,” said trainer Levi Wampler.

The class was free for members though they were asked to make a donation to benefit the Officer Down Memorial.
