(CBS) — Lauren Kosrow is a faculty librarian at Triton College but is also a black belt.
“I’ve been doing Martial Arts since I was 9 years old. I was an instructor for over five years in high school and college,” said Kosrow.
“At Triton, it’s typically a lot of female college students but today’s class, there are a few men. What people are looking for is practical tips,” she said. “In an hour, you’re not going to be a ninja. In an hour, you’re not going to have everything you possibly need to be prepared for every circumstance but I think some quick tips and things you can incorporate in your daily routine to make you feel a little more aware and confidence can help.”
