The Safety Team Presents: Empowerment & Pride!
Empowerment self-defense is a comprehensive approach to violence resistance which focuses on boundary setting, affirmative consent, assertiveness and simple, effective physical skills that empower the student in class and beyond.
Participants will learn pre-assault cues to help recognize potentially dangerous situations early, and verbal and physical skills to use to keep themselves safe. Throughout the class the message that students have a right to be safe and take up space will be reinforced, as well as the fact that 100% of the fault of an attack is the fault of the attacker, 100% of the time. Students are encouraged to use their voice and establish their own boundaries. The class is two and half hours which includes discussion and physical components. No experience is required. All fitness levels are welcome!
This class is open to LGBTQ+ women
