Women’s Self-defense and Empowerment 2018

This one-day course trains women in the necessary skills to deal with aggressive individuals, especially when in unfamiliar or uncomfortable locations. This includes traveling abroad or late at night in a parking garage/the street or on the college campus. Women will be given a dialog to use in the typical pre-attack phases of potential physical violence. Often this dialog and postural training will be enough to cause would-be attackers to go the other way. Women will be given extensive drills in simple but effective self-defense, including practicing their skills against a padded, male instructor in mock encounters while being coached by a women instructor. This course assumes that you have no previous training and it will be adjusted to the participant’s fitness level. Women get experience in finding their voice and grounding themselves in their core strength. This course offers life skills that will help women stand their ground in difficult situation at work, in relationships and wherever it’s necessary.

Women’s self-defense and Empowerment is a life changing experience even if you never have to use the physical self-defense skills.

Saturday April 21, 2018. 12:30-7:30. $125 per person.
