Event description
Empowerment Self Defence (ESD) is a comprehensive method of trauma-informed, violence resistance education and personal empowerment skills.

About this event

"1 in 5 Australian women will be sexually assaulted in their lifetime" - Australian Bureau of Statistics

In this workshop for female-identified people of 16 years and older we will teach how to recognise threatening situations in the early stages with appropriate boundary-setting skills and strategies to stop an assault before it becomes physical. Since over 80% of sexual assaults are perpetrated by someone the victim knows, our strategies and skills are designed to address the most common experiences of women in addition to addressing those assaults that are perpetrated by strangers.

You will learn verbal, mental and physical skills for violence prevention and de-escalation, including assertive body language, risk assessment, boundary setting, consent and the making of informed choices to assess and avoid violent situations.

We will also teach you physical skills that are adapted specifically for women, harnessing the strengths of women’s bodies and psyches and setting them against the weaknesses of the bodies and minds of assailants. All of the strategies are easy to learn and highly effective in preventing assault or ending an assault that may already be in progress.

NB. In order to give our students the best experience and time to practice these essential skills we have a maximum of 12 participants per workshop. BOOK NOW to avoid disappointment.
