D'IBERVILLE, MS (WLOX) -

A room full of women gathered at Alan Belcher MMA for a free self-defense class Sunday afternoon. The instructor, Ann Sanford, is a Jiu Jitsu world champion.

Sanford hosts at least one free class a year, but decided to do another one after a woman was attacked on the Biloxi-Ocean Springs Bridge.

The two hour class will teach women some defense techniques to use in the event they are ever attacked.

Caray Grace will have the full story tonight on WLOX News at 10 p.m.
