Free Self Defence Training

July 20, 2016- 3:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Learn to give a punch, take a punch, block a punch, and holds. A few hours of technique training followed by some friendly boxing/sparring/wrestling till whenever.

This event was created after several discussions with young women/girls in university about the recent sexual assaults as well as a concerning recent surge in fascist activity in so-called Vancouver. This event is free/by donation.

Snacks and drinks will be provided (will try to get stuff that people with allergies can consume). Boxing gloves are available, but in very limited supply so bring your own if you can. Wear sneakers and comfortable clothing.

No homophobes, transphobes, racists, fascists, or predators.

Accessibility Info: The venue is situated on the south side of Blood Alley Square across from several yuppie/gentrifying establishments such as Gringo’s and Meet Gastown. There are several cobblestones, but there is ramp access and it’s an open space once inside. There are fewer cobblestones to navigate coming from Abbott as opposed to Carrall. The washroom is not fully WC accessible, the doorway is about 27 inches wide.

This event is taking place on occupied and unceded Coast Salish Territories.
