PE & Rec Empowerment Self Defense Workshop

Friday, April 14, 2023 at 3:00pm to 5:00pm

Student Recreation Center (SRC), 47
1320 E. 15th Street, Eugene, OR

Self-defense isn’t just learning how to fight. It’s also learning how to set clear boundaries and stand up for yourself while maintaining healthy, positive relationships. In this supportive and empowering workshop, we will introduce you to a range of physical, verbal, and emotional skills that can help you recognize and thwart perpetrator tactics, reduce your risk of sexual assault, and feel more comfortable in your daily interactions. All techniques are simple, easy to learn, and effective regardless of fitness or experience level.

This workshop is open to all self-identified women and non-binary people who are comfortable in a space centered around experiences of those who identify as or may be perceived as women.

Wear comfortable clothing that allows ease of movement. No skill or experience required.

  • Participants should plan to arrive 5 minutes early to get signed in, as the session will start at the scheduled time. Reminder of the Group X policy: to support your comfort and safety, upon the workshop starting, any spot reserved online that is not present will be dropped, and stand-by patrons will be able to take your spot.
