About The Adventure

Want to feel more confident, safe and secure to go where you want to go? Want to know that you could defend yourself in the event of an attack?

Gain confidence and freedom by joining us for our beginners Women Embrace Self Defence Workshop.

This hands on workshop will begin to teach you the techniques to disable an attacker, helping you escape quickly.

Our instructor, Joanne Dovey, a Shim Jang Taekwondo 4th Dan Black belt qualified Regional Instructor and Kilaben Bay local, will provide support and encouragement to help you start to learn about self defence. Two Embrace Escapes host will make sure you have a great time and provide a relaxed and fun experience for everyone.

Knowing that you could defend yourself against a threat can give you the confidence to take on new adventures and explore new places. Self defence is all about personal safety, the most important benefit being to increase your overall safety in any situation.

During the workshop you will be moving around, trying the techniques and actions, no experience needed though and all fitness levels welcome.

Of course, a major component of staying safe involves avoiding certain situations that increase the risk of danger -- something you will learn as well.

Mum's and daughters welcome, suitable for girls 12 and over.

The mum's and those over 18 are welcome to join us for a quiet beverage at The Mulberry, upstairs at Toronto Pub, after the workshop to celebrate our new knowledge and confidence!
