Description: **We are prioritizing women and girls of racialized, im/migrant, and indigenous backgrounds to attend.**
Violence against the Feminine abounds and is on the increase locally and in our global community. It’s important for us women and girl-identified people to know how to protect ourselves so that we can go about our lives safely and with confidence. Thinking that “it’s not going to happen to me” is not enough. Hopefully it won’t happen to any one of us, but we’d rather that we didn’t rely on hope.
Most of us don’t have the time to dedicate years to studying a martial art in order to learn how to fight and no one should have to. We need to learn how to fight back effectively in realistic situations. This class is designed for women and young women 10 years old and up and for all abilities. It is not a martial arts class, it’s an educational program. Taught within a span of 15 hours (10am – 5:30pm on both days) would be practical, effective and uncomplicated techniques to help escape from common scenarios that could possibly be encountered if attacked. (Reg. course fee is $150/participant. Thanks to community sponsorships, this course was made more affordable!)
