PEAP instructor holds self defense class for UT Sororities


Lance England, adjunct instructor in the Physical Education & Activity Program, was featured in the Knoxville News Sentinel today for helping UT sorority members learn self-defense and good habits to be aware of their surroundings. Nearly 100 sorority women were present for the class in which they learned techniques to stop an attack or break off from it and escape.

England, a military veteran with several martial arts honors, currently teaches physical education courses in combat techniques and Samurai swordsmanship in UT’s Physical Education & Activity Program. The full story can be read at the Knoxville News Sentinel’s website.
