Discover how strong you really are!
Calling all females – moms/daughters; sisters; grandmothers/granddaughters; friends and neighbours. The Be Your Own Superhero Workshop is a fun 2-hour self defence class led by Joan Helson from Sisu Women’s Self Defence. It is about finding your voice, creating safe space and being unapologetically good to yourself. You’ll have a lot of fun hitting the pads, but we also want to help you reconnect your mind and spirit with your superpowers.
- Understand some key mental and physical elements that can be part of potentially dangerous situations
- Explore some simple, but effective, tools and strategies to help detect, avoid or escape potentially dangerous situations
- Discover and test drive the many tools in your self defence toolbox, including mental readiness, situational awareness, trusting your gut, using your voice, and physical defence options
We keep it simple. There are no fancy techniques – just basic kicks, strikes, escapes from grabs and holds and ground defences to give you personal safety options. No physical fitness, flexibility or skill level required to take this course — you work with what you’ve got.
