Event description

Description

This workshop is intended to teach practical self-defence techniques in an all-female environment where women can feel secure, comfortable and empowered. Leonora believes that we all harbor varying levels of aggression and that we should develop healthy ways to channel this aggression. Obviously, one of the ways to channel this aggression is through martial arts, especially if practiced in a safe and structured environment. For this workshop, the facilitator intends to lead a revitalizing warm-up, incorporate strength-building exercises and teach techniques like how to throw effective punches and kicks while also integrating combinations and evasion techniques. Lastly, she will finish with some conditioning and meditation.

About the Facilitator: Leonora King has been training in martial arts for about 8 years. The majority of her training is in White Crane Kung-fu although she has 1-2 years experience studying traditional kickboxing or Muay Thai. The white crane style of kung-fu is was in fact developed by Fang Qīniáng, a woman in the 18th century. Rather than being based on brute force, this style of martial art emphasizes evasion techniques and teaches one how to use an opponent's vulnerabilities and strength against them. Whereas, the art of Muay Thai has taught Leonora how to maximize her physical strength and power (when necessary). Most importantly, Leonora credits both of these techniques for having built her confidence as well as her mental and physical discipline.
