The Blue Bench is pleased to present a Safety and Empowerment Skills for Women and Girls course, in partnership with Reflective Wellness, September 9, 16, 23, and 30!
The Safety and Empowerment Skills class works with participants to develop verbal and physical assertiveness and self-protection skills. The course is open to the public for female-identified participants age 13 years old and up. Our instructors, experienced in self-defense skills proven to work well for women, train participants in techniques designed to use the unique strengths of female bodies. The Blue Bench believes in empowering those who want to learn and practice self-protection techniques with the opportunity to do so in a safe space. Sexual assault is never the fault of the victim- it is only the fault of the perpetrator who makes the choice to assault another person.
This 12-hour course will be offered over four weeks. A donation of $30 is suggested, though not required, for participation. For details and to register, contact Caroline Yates at firstname.lastname@example.org.
