Acts of Resistance – Self Defence workshop

188 Wychwood Avenue, Toronto

Everyone can use their bodies effectively, as they are to resist or defuse violent situations. In this workshop we will discuss how our socialization affects our choices to resist and learn ways of using our voice and body to take action, including hits, kicks, blocks and releases from holds.

We begin from the premise that we already are experts in our own self defence. Our goal is to build on our prior knowledge and increase our self confidence by teaching a variety of awareness, avoidance and verbal strategies. To accommodate the differences in size and strength, we employ simple, practical physical techniques that are designed to be effective even against a larger and stronger attacker.
