In this 8-hour class, students will learn self-defense strategies for threatening situations with strangers, as well as how to keep themselves safe around peers and familiar adults who may be unsafe. We will cover physical and verbal skills for many different situations, and the importance of assertiveness and boundary setting to ensure safety and comfort among friends and dating partners. Upon completion of the course, students will know how to use their body to defend themselves, be able to recognize red flags, know how to assertively communicate when they feel uncomfortable, and have a clearer understanding of what they want and deserve from relationships.
