Join the Milwaukee LGBT Community Center for an afternoon of empowerment and violence response strategies.

The first part of this workshop will explain how our minds and bodies react to assault. We will discuss these different responses and how to deal with them. Even if a person was to learn everything about self-defense, it doesn't automatically mean they will always be safe or be able to use the methods under extreme stress. The approach to self-defense used in this workshop will be based in empowerment, not in victimization or fear that we will eventually be attacked. We will break down myths and misunderstandings about assault and violence and learn methods on how to cope with past experiences.

Facilitator Nathan Pflughoeft has 19 years of martial arts training and will focus on techniques that can be quickly learned for anyone to defend themselves.

We will have mats for safety and a counselor on site as well! If you have any questions or to register, reach out to Alex Corona at [email protected] 414-292-3074.

Open to ages 13+ // FREE
