Wendo (Empowerment and self-defense for girls and women)

Wendo is a training of empowerment and self-defense for girls and women. It can help to get through uncomfortable situations.

This is what we practice in the training:

  • to get in contact with your emotions and feel your own boundaries
  • to set your own boundaries
  • to handle uncomfortable and threatening situations and get through them, find alternatives and to not give up quickly
  • to use posture, expression and voice to be clear
  • to express ones NO
  • to ask for help when needed
  • to (re)discover and feel your own strength
  • to use easy techniques of self-defense

This will also be part of the training: moving our bodies, having fun and relaxing.

Self-confidence and knowing one’s own strength can contribute to the courage to defend oneself against violence.
