Feminist self-defence workshops and courses help us to strengthen our ability to protect ourselves, and thus our self-confidence, before, during, and after an assault or a violation of our boundaries.
As women*, we regularly face sexist violence. This violence may be verbal, physical, psychological, or economic. It may take the form of humiliation, moral or sexual harassment, in a public place, at work, or at home (among other places).
This “flash” workshop is an introduction to Seito Boei feminist self-defence. It’s perfect for women who have never taken part in a self-defence course, and women who would like to refresh their memory: we will rapidly develop what we mean by feminist self-defence. We will get to know our boundaries and learn to recognise when they have been crossed. We will test several physical self-defence tools and techniques and experience our strength.
Lead by Pascale Botilde, who is trained in feminist self-defence, the workshop is also interactive: it will also be based on each woman’s experiences and resources. Details of organisations offering more advanced self-defence training will be given to you at the end of the workshop!
