Free Feminist Self-Defense

Learn self-defense under the sun!

This one-hour workshop includes a full range of self-defense tactics based in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, a ground fighting system that uses leverage to subdue assailants with chokes and joint locks. Workshop participants will gain basic skills in evading and escaping physical control, as well as neutralizing an attacker. While techniques take time to master, the focus will be on concepts that can be applied right away. The goal is to teach tangible strategies and promote the mindset that women can use their bodies in powerful and effective ways.

This workshop is geared towards those who are vulnerable to gender-based violence.
Donations over $10/person will sponsor free courses for women with financial need.
