Event description

Description

This week we are exploring self-awareness through self defense with Chris! The purpose of this KAAS session is to learn more about body awareness, utilizing verbal skills and boundary setting. Together, we will work to find our voice and set verbal boundaries for ourselves. As well we will use our bodies to explore movement and body awareness through martial arts movements. We will explore karate basics: blocks, stances and strikes, and how to get out of grabs and holds. We will also be having discussion about consent, boundaries and bodies.

Remember, all skill levels are welcome, so no prior experience is necessary. Please wear clothing that is comfortable and moveable and wear slip-less shoes or barefeet!



The 519’s Kids Action and Arts Space (KAAS)

is a free, drop-in program that offers kids who are 6 to 9 years old a fun place to connect, meet friends and new peers.

KAAS meets the first and third Saturday of each month, from 10:00 am – 12:00 pm.

The 519 is collaborating with community artists and educators to facilitate arts and movement-based activities for Two Spirit, Queer, Trans, and gender nonbinary kids, and the kids of queer and trans families.

Participants will explore activities like: storytelling, dance, theatre, and martial arts to name a few.

No experience is required

Collectively, we strive to create a safer, supportive and inspiring space where everyone – from facilitators to participants – can bring their full selves into the space, feel celebrated and continue to develop and strengthen their skills in self-expression.
