Free Family Self-Defense Workshop

Open to Families of All Sizes and Configurations

Saturday, August 12, 2017  |  2pm-5pm
FREE (Donations welcome)


We, at Hand to Hand, have seen intolerable actions encouraged following the recent election. We recognize that our friends, families, communities and ourselves may now be targets of overt and covert hate speech and actions.

In continuation of our thirty-seven year, to date, commitment to safety and positive social transformation, Hand to Hand offers free self defense and self-empowerment classes throughout this and the upcoming year. The focus of these classes will include learning to be allies to those in our community who may feel at risk, practicing de-escalation skills, expanding safety awareness, safe by-stander intervention strategies, and learning physical self defense techniques to implement if needed. Classes will be flexible in order to meet the needs of attendees and or specific community groups.

This three hour workshop, will take place on August 12th and will be open to families of all sizes and configurations. Registration is open and space is limited.  If you feel unsafe and would benefit from participation in a class at this time, please register. Join us in creating a community and a world for all people to feel valued, respected, and safe.

In Gratitude,
