Program Details

Learning self-defence means building a tool kit against threatening situations while developing the awareness to help you avoid them in the first place. This self-defence program, offered by Elements Academy, teaches effective technical escapes from realistic scenarios. Based on the renowned Gracie self-defence system, our instruction prioritizes skill not strength.

Registration opens January 6th with proceeds going to WAVAW. Registration options are per workshop or for the entire series. Each workshop will have its own focus. Light snacks provided.

Questions regarding this workshop series can be directed to Sarah Saghah at Health & Counselling Services - ssaghah@sfu.ca or 778.782.4692.
