Program to train women faculty and staff in self-defence

A two-day program offers UWindsor faculty or staff women of all ages and abilities the opportunity to practice easy-to-learn, easy-to-remember physical and verbal techniques in self-defence.

The Office of Sexual Violence Prevention, Resistance, and Support is hosting Wen Do Women’s Self-Defence on Saturday and Sunday, May 21 and 22.

The program includes responses to the most common assaults on girls and women, such as wrist and arm holds, choke and body holds, weapons defence, ground and bed defence, and gang and swarming situations. It promises effective blocks, strikes, and verbal self-defence for situations related to outdoors, public transit, private vehicles, home, work, and school safety.

Sessions run 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. both days in a campus space. Registration typically costs about $150 per person, but these sessions are free for UWindsor faculty and staff, although spots are limited. Sign up now.
