Open invitation to ALL women (this event is intended for all women across the spectrum (gender non-conforming, queer etc). Attend a FREE women’s self-defence seminar taught by women trainers. Drawing from an empowerment-based model, we will engage in a variety of practices from physical to verbal/boundary setting skills.

Food and drink will be provided during a mid-class break (vegan food will be available.) Please email us with any dietary restrictions or questions you may have at ubcwomenscentre@gmail.com. There will be a safe space available throughout the seminar as the subjects we deal with are sensitive and potentially triggering.

Please only click ‘going’ if you are fairly sure you will be able to attend so we can plan accordingly.

This is a feminist space – respect the cause, respect the healing, respect each other.

When – Tuesday, July 12th 5-8 pm
