Events from Summer 2021: Self Defense Workshop

The Princeton Women in STEM (WSTEM) Leadership Council hosted a virtual Self-Defense Workshop for graduate students to practice physical / verbal assertiveness and boundary setting. The workshop’s goal was to empower students with physical, mental, and verbal self-defense strategies, including socially acceptable self-defense strategies, navigating power dynamics in academic/workplace settings, and disabling techniques derived from jujitsu. The course was taught by Self Defense Instructor, Anika Sproull.
