About this Event

Wen-Do is coming to Belleville, ON! In partnership with the Children’s Safety Village and the Digital Empowerment Project, a Wen-Do Basic Self-Defence course is being offered at a subsidized rate. NOTE - SPACE IS LIMITED

Sat. January 25th & Sun. January 26th, 2020

9:30 am – 5 pm both days

You’ll learn: practical strikes, blocks, and releases; effective responses to harassment, threatening situations outdoors, on public transit, private vehicles, at home, work, and school; and strategies for dealing with attackers with weapons, ground and bed attacks, and gang and swarming situations.

Wen-Do is a registered charity and the oldest self-defence organization in Canada taught by women, for women. This 15-hour basic course covers a wide variety of physical and verbal self-defence techniques, awareness and avoidance of threatening situations, and discussions of psychological, social, and legal issues involved in self-defence through a feminist, anti-oppression lens. The course is open to transgender women and women and girls (ages 10+) of all abilities.

To register, please contact Julie Bennett at info@csvbelleville.com or (613)813-1278

For more information about the course, please contact Leslie Allin at leslie@wendo.ca

Course fee: $125 (NOTE: this is a subsidized registration fee)

“I totally enjoyed the camaraderie, supportive environment, and the skills we learned in this course! It is so important for women to support other women and this course really encouraged this behaviour. I feel totally empowered to defend myself and my confidence has increased as well!”—Wen-Do student
