This is a six-week introductory Wenlido self-defense class for trans, gender queer, and two-spirit individuals. Participants will be introduced to a variety of techniques involving awareness, avoidance, assertiveness, and action. And, they will learn how these strategies can reduce the risk of being harassed or attacked. The physical practice is balanced with group discussions on topics related to violence against marginalized persons. Participants should be at least 16 years old, and should wear comfortable clothing. All fitness levels are welcome. The cost of the six 2-hour sessions is $45, and people can register by searching #133239 on the City of Vancouver's activity registration page, or by calling 604-718-6252.
