Event description


Burlington Blue Wave Taekwondo offers FREE Safety and Self-Defense classes for Women and Teens* to the community.

A typical session includes discussion, explanation and demonstration of techniques, and practicing drills both with and without targets. Techniques take natural reactions and develop them into effective safety skills, providing women with options to protect themselves.

  • Different material is covered each week.

  • Classes are designed to accommodate all abilities.

  • No previous training or aptitude necessary.

  • Open to all women ages 14+. You do not have to be a Blue Wave student to attend.

  • Classes are FREE, but you must sign up here! Class is limited to 12 students.

Best wishes,

The program and is geared to suit women and teens ages 14+. Accommodations for younger teens may be available. Please contact the organizer with questions.

What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?

Ample parking is available at Blue Wave Taekwondo. The building is located off Dorset St, in the Sam Remo Drive loop. It is in the plaza to the right of Healthy Living, (almost) across from the University Mall. The GMT bus line stops at The University Mall (Route 12: UMall/Airport).

What should I bring into the event?

Please dress comfortably in clothes that allow you to move freely (sweats, leggings, tshirt… you get the idea). Drills are practiced with and without targets. We will be barefoot in a matted gym. If you need to wear shoes, please bring clean, indoor sneakers with non-marking soles. And water bottle, too (if desired)!

Can I bring my child?

There is a small waiting room outside of the practice area. The door between the rooms will be closed during the class, though you can easily pop out to check on your child at any time.

Do I need to bring a printout or paper ticket?

Nope. Just sign up here to confirm your spot!

How can I contact the organizer with any questions?

Please email Kristen Gagnon at with any questions.

Thank you!
