Empowerment Self-Defense Workshop

Sunday, April 15, 12pm – 1:30pm

The basic self-defense workshop covers strategies and safety plans for dealing with different levels of violence, emotional aspects of self-defense, and concrete steps we can take to help ourselves. Students of all skill and ability levels will learn basic physical-defense techniques including strikes, blocks and kicks; ways to get out of different grabs and holds, verbal exercises, and discussions about dealing with attackers who are strangers, acquaintances or intimates. Basic self-defense strategies include a full spectrum of responses, such as avoiding danger, yelling, getting away, tricking someone, defending with physical techniques, and seeking help afterwards.
