Sister Courage: Training on street safety
WORKSHOP 3 - Self-Defence
The final session is all about simple physical self-defence for those moments when conflict has become unavoidable. Rather than the traditional presentation of risk and threat on all sides which can only promote avoidance strategies, the desire here is to foster proactivity sooner, so women and girls can assert themselves before the threat level rises.
This workshop is a lesson in physical techniques. When you need to leave, when you must make yourself safe, this workshop presents some simple empowering options for self-defence proper. Because of the physical nature of this session those attending are asked to wear something they feel comfortable moving in.

THESE INITIAL WORKSHOPS ARE WOMEN-ONLY.
This is a pilot workshop and depending on interest we may offer more in the future as well as workshops for different groups.
