Queer Self Defense

Cory Klink of Bold Alchemy brings you Queer Self Defense!!! This one hour, all abilities class, will teach you how to use your body and everyday household objects to protect yourself. We will cover basic kicks, punches, stances, chokehold releases and meditation.

Cory’s specialty is teaching the mental side of self defense and readiness to counter any attack or non consensual approach. Students are encouraged to wear what they feel expresses themselves best and feels comfortable to move in. Please bring water to stay hydrated!

Cost - Sliding scale donation: Pay what you can!

$20 per student pays for cost.

See you at the Benders’ Dojo!
