Event Description: We are celebrating Women In Construction Week with a FIT + WELL mashup event, Female Awareness Self Defense! Join WWIRE and your fellow female CRE/AEC industry partners for an evening of networking + a self defense workshop! Light bites and refreshments will be provided. 

This 120-minute seminar is engaging, interactive and potentially life-saving. Gabrielle is a native New Yorker whose vision is to teach women everywhere how to Be Safe, Be Smart and Be Strong. Through Female Awareness, women of all ages learn how detect and respond to potentially dangerous situations—in a safe and team-building environment.

The difference between Female Awareness, Inc. and every other self-defense class is simple: its founder knows that an attack actually begins before it ever becomes physical. Situational awareness and a few simple moves can make the difference between being safe and being a statistic. Current clients include Fortune 500 companies, small businesses, health clubs, celebrities, universities and schools.

Hour 1 | The Safety Discussion:
▪ How to avoid being a target

▪ Effective tips on how to be safer and more aware
▪ Safety items and how to use your cell phone as an “invisible friend”
▪ Specific locations: elevators, street, subways, dates, bars, taxis, etc.
▪ Learning how to use your voice

Hour 2 | Physical Techniques:
▪ How, when and where to strike
▪ Learning over 23 strikes from head to toe
▪ What to do from the floor & how to handle attacks from behind
▪ Escape from multiple grabs and chokeholds
▪ How to handle multiple attackers & if a weapon is involved
