CPD 3320 - Women’s Self-Defense

Credits: 1

Description: This course will begin by examining the psychological tools needed to defend oneself and will gradually move into the actual, physical skills necessary to survive, escape, avoid and/or resist violence. The Women’s Empowerment Model will be presented. This model emphasizes self-respect, an understanding of one’s inalienable human rights, and the determination and ability to protect those rights. Students will learn self-defense against verbal and physical assaults by becoming more aware, assertive and skilled in physical resistance techniques. Using interactive exercises, students will practice both verbal and physical self-defense skills. All ability levels are welcome, but the class is extremely physical; thus, students should come prepared to move.

Note: Credit will be granted under one prefix only: CPD or HPL.
