The newest statistics about the occurrence of sexual assault suggest that one out of every two women will face this through the course of their lives. The Boundary Martial Arts Club, in collaboration with the RCMP, will be presenting a free theoretical workshop on danger awareness and avoidance. This will be followed by a demonstration of basic self-defense techniques.
This workshop will be presented by Tae Kwon Do instructors Bo Macfarlane, Vlodko Barchuk and members of the martial arts club. Constable Renee Thomson of the Grand Forks detachment of the RCMP has generously volunteered her time to present the theoretical part of the program.
This workshop is available to all women of all ages but the decision to attend this program with your daughters should be preceded by parental decision and conversations with them about these issues and their readiness to attend this workshop. Specific assault possibilities will not be addressed but this presentation should not be the first exposure to having a conversation about possible sexual assault.
The workshop will be held at West Boundary Elementary School in Rock Creek on Saturday, Oct. 26, from 9 a.m. – 12 noon.
Please dress in loose comfortable clothing if participating.
