WenDo – self-esteem, assertiveness and self defence for future female politicians


Language   English

A 2-days training program for begginers.


WenDo is a method of self-defence and assertiveness for women* and girls and an empowering method of counteracting violence that was created in the 70's of the last century. It teaches effective forms of physical and psychological self-defence, setting our own boundaries and taking care of other people's boundaries. It connects techniques taken from different martial arts with a space for analysing situations in which our boundaries have been crossed. WenDo helps you to regain your strength, self-esteem and shows you how you can react in the threatening situations. It also helps to reunite with other women and build trust through a safe workshop space which encourages to freely share one’s experiences, knowledge and reflections.
