About The Event

Join  us for a Women's Self Defense workshop, hosted by martial artists Sally Rose & Joshua Copson. Learn  simple, efficient, effective self-defense skills.  Although we are aiming to primarily  instruct those in the femme folx community, this is a non-discriminatory safe space where all ages (anyone 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 loose, comfortable clothing and bring water & snacks if needed. Come a few minutes early to sign media & release waivers.

Email with any questions or concerns!  PLEASE NOTE that this is a registration-only event and  attendance is capped. By registering, you are reserving a space.
