ST. LOUIS – Seventh Degree Blackbelt, Ali Moseia always says to be aware of certain things when walking around or into a room.

First, know the exits and then look around for anything that can be used to fend off an attacker. Half the battle is not allowing ourselves to be in a vulnerable spot.

Moseia holds classes all week for adults and children. One is coming up on June 16 at 2 p.m. at the Heights Community Center in Richmond Heights.
