EUGENE, Ore. -- McKenzie Martial Arts hosted a free women's self-defense seminar Saturday morning.

Owner Adam Roberts said they hold a self-defense class every Saturday, but four times a year they partner with a charity and hold a free two-hour seminar. For Saturday's seminar, they partnered with Food for Lane County.

Roberts said they use real-life situations to teach their students how to defend themselves.

"We want to say look, here's something realistic that happened, how can everybody do it? The art of Gracie Jiu-Jitsu here at McKenzie Martial Arts is based on real self-defense that everyone can do," said Roberts.

He also said it's someething that anyone can learn.

"Our goal here is no matter how young or old, it has to be realistic and you realistically have to be able to do it. We don't want something that takes 10 years to master. I want something that you can learn in two hours, and keep it when you walk out the door," said Roberts.

These seminars are free, but they do fill - up quickly. Roberts said you have to register ahead of time to attend.
