8th December- Self Defense Workshop*
Auditorium A Nador 15, 10:00-14:00

HRSI, in collaboration with the Gender Studies Department, brings you a Workshop on Feminist Self-Defense. Trainers will share with us the necessary skills to help us avoid dangerous situations and use our bodies as  weapons when necessary through the 3 aspects of self-defense: awareness, setting boundaries, and action. This course does not require any super skills! It was developed by ordinary people for ordinary people. It only requires an open mindset.

What to expect?
- Easy to learn, effective techniques
- Raised confidence to respond effectively in unsafe situations
- Nice and supportive instruction team

You are stronger than you think!
