What Every Young Woman Should Know
Did you know that 1 in 5 women will be sexually assaulted while at college? Women who take self-defense training are LESS likely to be targeted for physical, or sexual assault. They are more confident in their ability to react effectively in a threatening situation, and have skills they can use to stop an attack.
Join us this summer before heading off to school for a self-defense class designed specifically for college-aged women. Our classes emphasize an empowerment perspective. We teach practical, effective, and realistic self-defense techniques that any woman can use to increase her safety. We help women discover their own strength and voice – which you can use to stay safe!
This class will focus on giving young women information and tools to prepare them for the college environment. They will learn:
- Strategies to use to reduce the risk of assault
- How to respond if you feel uncomfortable or threatened
- Physical self-defense techniques you can use to defend against an attacker
- How to defend from possible attack scenarios like someone grabbing you, choking you, or pinning you to the ground
This Class was taught at South Elgin High School
- Saturday, July 29 – 3-5:00 pm
