What is Wen-Do?

Wen-Do Women's Self Defence is a registered charity and the oldest women's self defence organization in Canada. Our courses have been recommended by the Toronto Rape Crisis Centre: Multicultural Women Against Rape, the University of Toronto Community Safety Office, and Toronto Police.

In a Wen-Do course, you will:
learn simple, effective physical self-defence techniques
explore verbal self defence - reasoning, confronting, using surprise, and more...
discuss issues of violence against women and girls in a supportive setting
and share inspiring real-life stories of resistance!

Classes are small, safe, non-competitive, and fun! Women of all ages, shapes, and sizes, with and without disabilities, are encouraged to take Wen-Do. All our courses are taught by women for women and girls (ages 10 and up).

LEAF Legal Education and Action Fund

Celik v. Wen-Do Women’s Self Defense Inc.

Michael Celik, supported by a men’s rights group entitled In Search of Justice, challenged Wen-Do Women’s Self-Defense Corporation-a women’s only self defense program. Mr. Celik argued that his rights to equal treatment under the Ontario Human Rights Code were denied when he was not allowed to participate in the class. Wen-Do offers a unique service by providing a safe space to women to speak about their fears and experiences related to sexual violence.

LEAF argued that Wen-Do’s mandate was geared toward promoting women’s equality and was therefore not in violation of human rights legislation. The Human Rights Commission agreed with LEAF and ruled that it was not discrimination to deny a man access to a self-defence course designed for women.
