Fun, empowering, and interactive after-school activities for the New Year -- Join Culture of Safety for our Family Self-Defense Series!

About this Event

Looking for fun, empowering, and interactive after-school activities for the New Year? Join Culture of Safety for our 8-week Family Self-Defense series, held Wednesdays 4:30-5:30 at Glenwood Dance Studio in Rogers Park. Classes start Wed January 8th and continue through March 4th (no class Feb 12th).

Want to know what to expect from our classes? Kids (age 5+) and their adults (parents, or other caretakers) will both learn and practice:

  • Fun and interactive self-defense and karate-based physical movements designed to help students feel strong and empowered
  • Powerful responses for interrupting and stopping bullying behavior
  • Effective tools to help you speak up for yourself and others confidently in everyday life
  • Easy-to-learn self-calming techniques for when you're scared, overwhelmed, or agitated

You can purchase single tickets or family tickets. A "family" ticket is just what it sounds like -- it's for the whole family! Any number of adults and kids within one household (babysitters/nannies/hired caretakers too). It's a great deal!

Led by Culture of Safety Co-founders Dr. Erin Epperson and Amy L.E. Jones, LSW, all classes will be trauma-aware, culturally humble, and empowering. Come as you are (wear comfortable, easy-to-move in clothing). Topics and skills will be appropriate for all ages and abilities (age 5+). No experience in self-defense or martial arts required. We will split into groups and support people one-on-one as appropriate to help each child and adult get the best experience out of the class.

Not sure if you want to commit to all 8 sessions? No worries! You can purchase a 4-session package to try it out.
