As we know, some environments in the world can be very intimidating and hostile due to predatorial behavior, violence, and criminal activity. Our Self-defense workshop sheds light on the realities of violence with a detailed emphasis placed on situational awareness, perceived vulnerability, and effective survival strategies. The workshop includes video presentations, group discussions, and scenarios concerning real life violence. The ability to recognize possible threats while seeking for an effective way to escape to safety is taught in a safe environment conducive for learning. The basic skills learned during this workshop will become second nature through scenario discussion and repetition.
