This workshop is intended to teach practical self-defense techniques in an environment where participants can feel secure, comfortable and empowered. For this workshop, the facilitators will focus on escape and evasion techniques – while on the ground and upright. Striking, restraint and verbal strategies will also be explored. Finally, we will incorporate some intuitive training, role-playing and scenarios. Each workshop will feature different strategies, so it is recommended to attend all 3 workshops; however previous experience is not necessary.
