We2® Self Defence Workshop :: March 24, 2016 :: West Island

Self Defence for Women with We2® and KM3

Part of the We2® mission is to bring women tools they need for business…and also for life and lifestyle. Because we know that all things interconnect. From we eat to how we feel.

This March, We2® is bringing something unique to our workshop repertoire. It is a topic that I am really passionate about. Over the years, I have heard incredible stories of triumph, women who have overcome harrowing experiences. SO many of us. So. Many. Myself included. Some may seem like a small incident, some are completely life-changing.

We pray for smooth sailing, but attacks happen. It can be somebody we’d never suspect, it can be somebody very close, or a stranger on a busy downtown street. It can be subtle, it can be overt. And trust me when I say (from personal experience), sometimes there are good Samaritans out there who will help…and there are times when a crowd of people will watch – and do nothing.
It will be up to you to survive it.

But there is no need to feel powerless or doom-and-gloom. There are things we can do!!

We2® is partnering up with Vlad Alexandru of Km3 Krav Maga to bring you a workshop that is in my opinion, a must for everybody.

How to best keep yourself and your loved ones – including children – safe.

In this 3 hour workshop we’ll learn the practical and theoretical and bust some common myths about how we assume attacks happen and how they actually do occur.

We’ll learn how to diffuse a situation and some of the psychological aspects that can keep women and children safer.

Of course, we’ll learn some of the best practical tools to use if G-d forbid something should ever happen along with our heightened awareness.

Importantly, we’ll learn not only how to take care of ourselves, but how to protect a third party, like children, while having to simultaneously handle a situation.

You will feel more confident, empowered and secure in your knowledge. Learning to be mentally and physically alert and prepared means you will carry yourself differently in all areas of your life, including business.

Bring comfy gym-type clothing, a clean pair of sneakers and some water!

Workshop participants are welcome to join us afterward for a casual lunch at Tandoor et Grille (building attached) for some good conversation and casual networking. Yum!

Space is limited to less than normal We2® events, and tickets are on sale!

A WE²-bit® about Vlad:
