Wen-Do focuses on women's safety and empowerment, preparing participants to defend themselves both mentally and physically, and giving women the confidence to deal with the range of types of aggression they are most likely to encounter in real life. The techniques we teach are practical and easy to learn, and the learning environment is safe, supportive, and full of positive energy.
In this 2-hour workshop, we'll cover the fundamentals of women's 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 violence against women.
This workshop is open to women identified and non-binary students, staff, and faculty of all abilities.
Wen-Do is a registered charity and the oldest self-defence organization in Canada taught by women, for women.
The room location will only be provided to those who register for the event via email from the event organizer.
