EVENT FULL! Boys Self-Defense (Ages 7-13)


In this (boy-centered family class) participants will explore a variety of situational awareness strategies to better help boost confidence, expose students to practical tools for common physical exchanges, and provide resources for avoiding and managing potential emergency situations. This short, informal class will include very basic low impact physical exercises, and academic content through discussion and resource handouts. Concepts of consent and up stander/ally skills will be touched on throughout as well.

  • ALL levels welcome!
  • Guardians are absolutely encouraged to participate and take the class with their child, but may also sit and watch instead if child is 7-13 years old. Ages 13 may participate without an adult present.
