TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) - A Tallahassee martial arts studio offers free self defense classes today, in light of recent attempted abductions in the capital city.

The martial arts fitness academy in Tallahassee offered two free classes today. One for children and the other for adults. The class covered awareness drills, safety tips, and defensive tactics to fend off an attacker. 

Instructors say they saw a big turnout today and they think it's partially because of the recent string of attempted kidnappings in the Tallahassee area.
