Level II Workshop: The 2.5-Hour Intermediate Women’s Empowerment Self-Defense Program
The Level II intermediate workshop takes Level I another step further, allowing for a brief review of knowledge, practice of acquired strikes, and instruction of additional basic self-defense techniques that deal with a variety of common situations and potential attacks. The focus is on “hands-on” verbal and physical self-defense skills, techniques and strategies, which are presented to the group as a whole, but practiced in small groups of no more than five participants for each instructor. This format facilitates the learning of physical skills and allows for women to connect with one another. Throughout this class, important concepts are reinforced (affirmative consent, boundary setting, each person’s right to be safe).
Our Level I Workshop is a prerequisite for Level II.
Open to girls/women (including cis, trans and non-binary) ages 14+. Participants ages 12 and 13 are welcome if accompanied by an enrolled and participating parent/guardian.
All workshop fees are non-refundable.
