About The Event

Join us for a Women's Self Defense workshop at the Nelson Heritage Center in Arrington hosted by martial artists Sally Rose & Joshua Copson. Learn simple, efficient, effective self-defense skills. The workshop is FREE but donations are appreciated. Although we are aiming to primarily instruct those in the femme folx community, this is a non-discriminatory safe space where all ages (children under 18 must be accompanied by an adult) and genders are welcome. Our mission is to teach womyn how to defend themselves and walk without fear. We will also have discussions on strategies, fears, hopes, and goals. The workshop focuses on self defense techniques that are simple, efficient and effective for real life situations. The name “Fight Like A Grrrl” is meant to reclaim the fact that girls are strong & women are tough.

Wear comfortable clothing and bring water & snacks if needed. Come a few minutes early to sign media & release waivers.

Email with any questions or concerns! Preregistrations are first come, first served, and workshops fill up quickly!  PLEASE NOTE that this is a registration-only event and attendance is capped. By registering, you are reserving a space.

Can't wait to see you there!

A huge thank you to the Nelson County Community Fund for awarding us a grant to make this free workshop possible! 

We will announce details of Covid restrictions closer to the date of the event.
