Empowerment Self-Defense for Women and Girls
This 2-part series will cover strategies for dealing with threatening situations and boundary-violations, including dealing with offensive comments or behavior, interactions with angry people, street harassment/danger, and physical and sexual assaults. Participants will learn and practice setting appropriate verbal and physical boundaries and other tactics 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. Because this class builds upon skills from the previous class, attendance at the first class is required. Please wear comfortable clothes that allow you to move freely. For females ages 16+.
Tuesdays, September 26, and October 3
Pamlico County Community College, Grantsboro campus
