Safety & Self-Defense workshops
ROX staff members are certified women's self-defense instructors and have a combined 16 years experience teaching self-defense to girls and women. Self-defense education is a component of the ROX curriculum and the ROX team also provides private stand-alone workshops for schools, organizations, teams, and businesses. The safe, female-only environment allows participants to explore myths and facts about violence, learn emotional, verbal, and physical strategies for staying safe, and experience their own strength and confidence in a supportive setting.
Facilitated workshops with mothers/ female adults and girls provide opportunities for girls to connect in meaningful ways with the important adults in their lives. Workshops can be conducted as part of a full ROX program or as a stand-alone activity. These 2 hour workshops are delivered by two trained facilitators and are effective in improving communication and connections between adults and teens. Adult-only activities, teen-only activities and joint activities provide an opportunity for honest discussion and a safe place to explore new ways of relating.
