UIJEONGBU, Jul. 10 (Korea Bizwire) — Amid public rage over the viral video of a South Korean man beating his Vietnamese wife, a South Korean police agency is being praised for offering self-defense martial arts training to married female immigrants.
Gyeonggi Bukbu Provincial Police Agency said that it held a crime prevention program for 33 participants who were married female immigrants and children from multicultural families from July 5 to 7.
The program, which started last year, is comprised of self-defense martial arts training, a domestic violence prevention course, and instructions on women’s rights protection.
For the self-defense martial arts course, the police invited female professors of aikido and taekwondo from the Central Police Academy as instructors for the participants, most of whom were highly satisfied with the program.
