Program offers self-defence training to women faculty and staff

UWindsor faculty or staff women can take a self-defence course worth $150 for free on Saturday and Sunday, May 21 and 22, thanks to the Office of Sexual Violence Prevention, Resistance, and Support.

The two-day program, Wen Do Women’s Self-Defence, offers easy-to-learn, easy-to-remember physical and verbal techniques in response to the most common assaults on girls and women: wrist and arm holds, choke and body holds, weapons defence, ground and bed defence, and gang and swarming situations.

Sessions run 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. both days in a campus space. Space is limited; sign up now.
