Women’s Self-Defense Workshop | #CivicWomen

Location: Stage

7:00pm - 9:30pm EST

We’re on a mission to equip female-identifying individuals with the tools and information they need to protect themselves against violence and assault. Take your personal safety into your own hands by mastering the basics of proper techniques from our Mixed Martial Art professionals. Our goal is for every attendee to walk away from this fun and educational experience with more confidence, peace of mind, and a few connections.

CivicWomen is proud to partner with JKD NYC on our first ever Women’s Self-Defense Workshop. This engaging evening event, hosted by Shaneka Ramdeen, will take place at Civic Hall and will be led by the owner of JKD NYC, Chris Moran. Also, be sure to join us after the lesson, as we transition from sweat to social with an assortment of treats and wine.

Space for this event is limited. To secure your seat, RSVP HERE
