ACTION: LET’S GET PHYSICAL
Artists Melissa Wyman and Jenifer K Wofford team up for a one-hour extravaganza at YBCA, addressing some primary targets you should know about! Featured this evening:
EYES KNEES GROIN THROAT — a music video and sing-along led by Jenifer K Wofford
Wofford’s video (made with Alysoun Quinby and Harrison Dumont) provides a sassy mnemonic device for remembering some soft spots on an attacker’s body, 80s music video-style. Participants can sing along!
Introductory Self Defense, a workshop led by Melissa Wyman
Wyman’s workshop provides an introduction to basic self-defense, including: balance, awareness and preparedness training, identifying and claiming personal space, and both effective de-escalation and attacking techniques.
First come, first serve: event capacity 20 persons. Dress comfortably. Be prepared to move!
Members of vulnerable populations especially welcome. Bullies need not apply.
