I try not to make sweeping judgments about what people should and shouldn’t do. But here’s one exception.
Every woman should know how to defend herself.
There are many resources for horrifying statistics of violence against women.
1 out of every 2 women in Canada has been physically or sexually assaulted at least once (from the age of 16). This figure represents 51% of 10 million woman.
uOttawa WISE will be doing our bit to help women defend themselves this coming weekend. September 27th, we’ll be running a self-defense seminar at Therien Ju Jitsu on the corner of Montreal Rd and North River Rd. Students $10, non-students $20. Register at our Facebook event, as numbers will be limited.
I hope we see you there.
