Young Feminists & Allies, the National Organization for Women’s inaugural virtual chapter is hosting a FREE feminist self-defense workshop with TEDx speaker and founder of Feminist Self-Defense, Rachel Piazza. The event will be held at East 54th St. Recreation Center (348 East 54th St. New York, NY) on June 7th from 7-8:30pm.
This FREE workshop includes a full-range of self-defense techniques based in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, a ground fighting system that uses leverage to subdue assailants with chokes and joint locks. Taught within a feminist framework, the workshop will teach tangible strategies and promote the mindset that women can use their bodies in powerful and effective ways.
Donations over $10/person will sponsor free courses for women with financial need.
