FEMALE EMPOWERMENT WORKSHOP
Female Empowerment is the official RESOLVE it self defence workshop for women.This 6 week workshop covers key personal safety tips and self defence tactics aimed to reduce the risk of you becoming a victim of crime.
Each one-hour workshop addresses two practical techniques as well learning the Law in relation to the use of physical force for personal defence of self and others.
Unlike most self defence systems that rely heavily on strength, speed, and coordination, the techniques in the Female Empowerment workshop employs leverage, technique, and timing, so anyone, regardless of age or athletic ability, can make them work against larger opponents.
Women face a variety of different potential attacks from muggings, sexual harassment,sexual assault, rape, domestic violence to physical assault. A lot of attacks are not so much physical but actually physiological in that the power is the main motivational goal and the physical is the means to effect this.
That’s why women's self defence is so important.
It has been recorded that:
•1 out of 4 women will be sexually assaulted in their lifetime.
•4 out of 5 women who fight back will get themselves out of the situation.
•1 in 20 women in England/Wales have been a victim of rape according to Home Office Statistics.
•Almost 1 in 5 reported rapes are now drug assisted.
•Attacks on Children according to the Home Office find that 25% of rape victims are children.
•Those that have conducted and learnt women’s self defense moves are more likely to be successful.
RESOLVE it is about empowerment within a situation and environment. Its allwell and good learning technique after technique but unless you feel empowered you will never use anything you have learnt if and when you need to use it.
