Tired of getting harassed on your street, in your building, or in your home ’cause of your gender or sexuality? Worried about your safety when you go home, to work, to the store, or anywhere?

Learn effective self-defense techniques to escape a violent altercation, and discuss how to reduce your chances of being in one in the first place. We will be discussing everything from stranger violence to domestic violence.

This particular training is specifically geared at genderqueer and trans* folks (while remaining open to cis-women), and we would like to really encourage transmasculine and butch people to attend this round!

The class is free, open to the public, trans*-inclusive, and taught by women. And we’ll wrap up with refreshments and community building!

Space is limited, call the school to register: 718-418-9892
Or register by email: SelfDefense.Brooklyn@gmail.com

No previous experience necessary. We can work around injuries. Wear comfortable clothing; no jewelery, please.

Class starts at 7pm, please arrive by 6:45pm.
**Refreshments to follow.**

Sorry, but cis-men are not invited to participate in this class, though we hope you’ll tell your friends about it! People of all genders are welcome to try regular class for free, any time. Check out our website for the class schedule: http://tokarate.com/classes.php
