There’s a self-defense course for women taking place in Kapuskasing this weekend. Newly certified Krav Maga instructor Crystal Brisson says the session is designed for women 16 and up.
Brisson says it’s not about fighting, it’s about not being a victim.
The course will be taking place at Ecole du Nord on Saturday and gets underway at 9:00am. Brisson says there’s no cost to participate, but it’s recommended that you bring a lunch and drinks. If you are planning on taking part in the event, you’re being asked to bring either women’s PJ’s, socks, hygiene products or any toys.
Brisson says anyone who participates will learn the skills needed to help defend themselves. She says it’s important for women to stand strong together and says while many people say “this won’t happen to me”, you can’t guarantee that.
