Empowerment Self-Defense for Women

May 2 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm


Build confidence and have fun while learning effective prevention skills in a safe and supportive environment. We will cover strategies for dealing with uncomfortable or threatening situations, verbal harassment, and physical and sexual assaults. Participants will learn and practice setting appropriate psychological and physical boundaries and other strategies intended to reduce vulnerability to becoming a target of violence. Skills are designed to increase safety by increasing awareness and personal presence, learning to assess dangerous situations and using appropriate intervention strategies that fit the situation. This class will involve the practice of physical techniques that anyone can learn, regardless of your physical skills or abilities. Open to girls and women ages 14+.
