Safer and more confident: Six weeks of Empowerment Self-Defense - CANCELLED

The DC Center

Event Type

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, we decided to cancel the 6 week self-defense class. We will have new dates available, once the pandemic ends.

Do you know what you’d do if someone rubbed up against you on the Metro? How about if a co-worker kept asking personal questions, or if harassers yelled at you on the street? We cover these and many, many more situations in this 6-week class.

We will cover everything from street harassment to defending yourself against chokes and grabs; everything from prevention to assertiveness, from physical strikes to healing. You’ll find the power in your own body and mind to learn and practice boundary-setting and clear, direct communication as the foundation of self-defense.

Who: Cis and trans women, teen girls, trans men and nonbinary people age 16+. Open to all abilities, sizes, and fitness levels: You don’t have to be a martial artist or an athlete to help yourself be safer!
When: 6 Wednesdays from 6:30-8:30pm April 15, 22, 29 and May 6, 13, 20  

Where: The DC Center  2000 14th St NW #105, Washington, DC
