Introduction To Empowerment Self Defense

We already know a lot about staying safe in different situations. This class builds on our personal safety strategies and examines them in response to micro-aggressions, bullying, coercion and physical assault. In this 3-hour class, participants will learn skills in intuition, situational awareness, body language and voice – all proven effective at increasing safety and confidence. Participants practice these skills in role play scenarios with both strangers and with those more likely to instill feelings of “un-comfortableness” – people we know.  This course covers the principles of interpersonal safety and individual choice – providing participants with embodied awareness, practice, and tools for their personal toolbox.
Participants will:
  • Learn how to raise your awareness and enhance safety skills
  • Gain verbal and physical tools for preventing and responding to harassment, assault, and abuse
  • Heal from past trauma
  • Physical skills taught are accessible to all
Timeframe: 3 hours
Group Size: 10 – -20 participants
