A martial arts studio is hosting a workshop designed to give women tools to use to defend themselves.

Tsawwassen United MMA, Fitness with PJ and Go Fit Gals are presenting a women’s self-defense workshop.

United MMA owner and head coach Andrew Davies will lead the workshop that has been designed to instruct women a variety of ways to defend themselves in the event of an attack.

“It’s not meant to scare women,” says organizer, and personal trainer, PJ Wren. “It’s meant to empower.”

Davies said he’ll be going through a number of basic strikes that women can use against an attacker, as well as pointing out vital areas to strike, how to escape the most common holds and moves that can be used while standing or on the ground.

“It’s important to know where to aim,” Davies said, adding he can teach women how to use their strength to do as much damage as possible quickly and get away from an attacker.

“The idea is to give them really basic moves that are easy to remember,” he said.
