Bystander Intervention: Basic Self-Defense Training

Regardless of your age, sex, gender, race or any variable characteristics, it’s always a good idea to have some basic knowledge about how to defend yourself. Men Against Rape Culture is partnering with the nonprofit organization Warrior Sisters to offer a Bystander Intervention: Basic Self-Defense Training. This training will specifically focus on verbal and physical defense skills. Warrior Sisters' lead trainer will be leading the training. The group will be providing training on a variety of tools and skills that can be used to de-escalate a dangerous situation, as well as to defend yourself, and others, if things have already escalated to violence. 

The Bystander Intervention: Basic Self-Defense Training will take place from 1-4 pm Saturday, Aug. 26, at the Northwest Fencing Academy (436 Charnelton Street, Suite 100). The event is FREE and open to everyone, regardless of skill level or experience. — Meerah Powell
