Join us for our introductory 2-day self-defense intensive, and get a handle on the fundamental skills you need to protect yourself and others in an all-women environment. There's a lot more to self-defense than kicking an attacker in the groin, and we'll be addressing all of the following topics:

- legal rights and Use of Force frameworks in Canada
- identifying potentially dangerous people and situations
- decision-making
- verbal de-escalation and intervention
- physical defense techniques
- aftercare and follow-up

In Day 2 of this workshop, students will have the opportunity to participate in several tactical self-defense scenarios, and practice their decision-making, de-escalation, and physical response skills in a realistic context. Participation in these scenarios is entirely voluntary, and there is substantial benefit to simply watching them take place. If you have experienced a violent event (physical or emotional) and are worried that some aspects of the course may be triggering, please feel free to speak with us ahead of time.

This course is designed for students with no prior self-defense or martial arts experience, and there is no fitness requirement. This women's-only session is open to all female- and femme-identified students. We believe in making effective self-defense training available to as large of an audience as possible. If financial hardship would prevent you from participating, please contact us (info@valkyriemartialarts.com) to discuss sponsorship or other accessibility options.
