With regards to the physical component, you do not have to be a black belt or hide from the public to reduce the odds of surviving and escaping an attack. Girls on Guard © has been designed over several decades to support women and girls, to address the unique challenge of sexual violence and general self-defense. This is not an introductory martial arts program. Instead, it is a skill set designed for women of all body types and athleticism to defend themselves from a larger and stronger attacker. The class is fun, even though the techniques are serious, and content may be uncomfortable to discuss. Girls on Guard © is a program designed to give you the best techniques, that are easy to learn, and easy to remember under times of stress.

Attending the fi rst module is not a requirement, but highly encouraged (For example roughly 75% percent of the time a sexual assault is perpetrated by someone known to the potential victim).

Capoeiristas train to evade kicks rather than block, contact is minimized, which contributes to the beautiful and poetic fl ow of a modern-day game. Heighten body awareness, improve balance, coordination, fl exibility, and strength. Enjoy a great workout and playful group camaraderie. All ability levels welcome. Class focus will be on increasing core fi tness, and agility through basic Capoeira movement. Come play! Bring a water bottle, wear non-restrictive clothing, no shorts, bare feet. Participants are invited to arrive 10 minutes early, at 5:00pm, for a beginner's introduction to Capoeira, or individualized tips on tackling moves.
