EMPOWERMENT SELF DEFENCE WORKSHOP
In this self defence program, Antonella offers a culmination of everyday realities with the sensitivity to the psychology of women in our society and other high-risk populations.
The ESD workshops are rooted in personal and group empowerment and it draws from the principles of holistic body-mind-consciousness connection.
This is a workshop like no other. Taught by a female instructor with over 22 years of martial arts experience, a degree in psychology, mediator in conflict resolution and internationally trained in Empowerment Self Defence and life coaching, Antonella offers a unique and practical workshop specifically designed for all the diverse groups.
Boundary setting, verbal deescalation, physical techniques and understanding your psychology around violence are just some of the important topics you will learn in a fun, engaging and integrated workshop.
What women have said about Antonella’s ESD workshops;
“Thank you so much Antonella! I have learnt so much about myself and what I am capable of! I feel so empowered xoxo”.
“Antonella is a wonderful instructor with a huge amount of knowledge and passion for empowering women. Women can take the course knowing that they will leave feeling stronger, more prepared, empowered. What Antonella is doing is beyond important in todays society”.
“I have learnt some key defence techniques, be more observant of situations that I have a bad feeling about and how to handle it. Think, Yell, Run, fight, tell. Additionally I’ve learnt that women are strong and were allowed to protect ourselves when confronted with an icky situation”.
“I always wanted to attend some sort of self defence workshop – and the language surrounding ESD felt really empowering vs fear based. I love the way Antonella explains things from a different perspective. I definitely want to learn more and tell all my friends about it”.
BEAUTY BITES BEAST
DATE TO BE CONFIRMED
Ellen Snortland’s film, “Beauty Bites Beast – Revealing the Missing Conversations about Ending Violence,” aims to spark discussions to help put an end to violence against women and girls.
Self-protection is not a gendered trait, but a crucial skill that other species learn early in life through play. Ellen and her co-producers of “Beauty Bites Beast” are passionate about spreading the truth that self-defense is the ultimate manifestation of the phrase: “Think Globally, Act Locally.”
“Females of all species know how to protect themselves and it’s a birthright for human females too,” Ellen says. “There’s nothing more local than one’s own body.“`
