If you decide to take a self-defense class, you will need to find one. Let me suggest some places to find local self-defense classes.
A local YMCA or YWCA may offer self-defense classes. Give your local one a call.
Colleges often have self-defense classes. They may offer some only to students, though. Community colleges often host many different classes for the public.
You probably have many martial arts schools in your area. Even if you do not want to learn a martial art, many of these places also have generic self-defense classes or sessions.
You can look on craigslist.com. You can read and post local classified ads and listings for free on craigslist.
