Self-defense crash course
The field of realistic self-defense encompasses a lot – from de-escalation and tactical avoidance to effective defensive techniques against physical attacks.
Our head plays at least as big a role in self-defense as our body does. Our mental state influences our well-being and our self-confidence which are reflected in our behavior. Especially when we are dealing with the issue of sexual harassment, the areas of “confident appearance”, “boundaries setting" and "assertiveness" should be considered.
Contents of the workshop are:
• Basics of self-defense: posture, movement, attention
• De-escalation and tactical behavior
• Defense against typical attacks
• Increase in self-awareness
• Scenario training: "What do I do if...?"
• Strengthening of self-confidence through various exercises on cognitive and physical level
• Setting boundaries and maintaining them
