Wen-Do is a registered charity and the oldest self-defence organization in Canada taught by women, for women. This 15-hour basic course covers a wide variety of physical and verbal self-defence techniques, awareness and avoidance of threatening situations, and discussions of psychological, social, and legal issues involved in self-defence through a feminist, anti-oppression lens.
