For 2019's SAAM (Sexual Assault Awareness Month) Day of Action, TruFit Personal Training Studios is hosting a special event-- Lady Bosses Don't Back Down: A Self-Defense Workshop for Women and Businesswomen.
Join us to learn female-focused self-defense techniques (incl. boundary setting, situational awareness, and striking). No experience necessary. Ok for all fitness levels. Event proceeds will benefit the YWCA Evanston/North Shore.
When: Tuesday, April 2, 2019. 6:30PM-8:30PM.
Where: 610 Davis St., Ste 2, Evanston, IL 60201 (TruFit)
Why: Every woman has a right to feel safe, and to have her body and boundaries respected by others. We're excited to provide this opportunity to empower women and support the YWCA (an organization that does tremendous work for local women and families).
Who: Michelle Courvais Trudel and Aaron Christensen are AWSDA (American Women's Self Defense Association) certified Rape Prevention and Self-Defense Instructors. They are also involved with IMPACT Chicago, as a certified Self-Defense Instructor (Aaron) and Program Assistant/Facilitator (Michelle), and are both members of Not In Our House: Chicago--an organization created to combat sexual harassment within the Chicago theatre community.
Tickets for this event are $20 per person. Reserve your spot by donating $20 or more here (on our event's gofundme page).
