Family Self Defense (8 years and up)
February 25 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm$30.00
This unique workshop provides opportunities for parents/guardians and children to learn together tactics and skills to stay safe in public and private spaces. We understand that the topic of self-defense can be triggering for anyone who has experienced violence such as bullying, harassment, or assault.We begin each workshop with a listening session that prioritizes the safety concerns and needs of the participants to help us prioritize the topics. Topics include street smarts and strategies to stop or interrupt harassment and bullying, recognizing healthy and unhealthy behaviors, setting and respecting boundaries, assertive communication, de-escalation, and physical and non physical skills. All sessions are designed to create an emotionally safe learning environment. Sessions are led by experienced facilitators who have been teaching self-defense to people of all backgrounds, genders and ages. Workshops incorporate best practices in teaching and facilitation and include role plays and scenarios.
