Wen-Do Self Defence Workshop for Staff and Faculty

Wen-Do Self Defence Workshop Women-Identified and Non-Binary Staff and Faculty
Date: January 28th
Time: 4:30PM - 6:30PM
This workshop is open to women identified and non-binary staff and faculty of all abilities.
Wen-Do focuses on safety and empowerment, preparing women-identified participants to defend themselves both mentally and physically, and giving them the confidence to deal with the diverse types of aggression they are most likely to encounter in real life.
The techniques used are practical and easy to learn, and the learning environment is safe, supportive, and full of positive energy.
This 2-hour workshop will cover the fundamentals of self-defence through a feminist, anti-oppression analysis, the importance of using our voice, body weapons, kicks, blocks, a range of releases, and we will break down stereotypes about gender based violence.
Wen-Do is a registered charity and the oldest self-defence organization in Canada taught by women-identified instructors.
Please Note: You will receive the room location and details once you register.
