WHAT IS IT?
This workshop covers theory and physical training which are highly applicable in day-to-day life and gives added confidence to sex workers whilst working. The workshop covers negotiation, de-escalation, legalities, physical training exercises and simulated exercises in a padded room.
We equip sex workers so that they can protect themselves if the situation proves necessary. This is a Krav Maga training session that is tailored specifically for sex workers. This course is a preventative measure designed to provide knowledge and instill confidence using realistic training situations and combat skills. A certificate of completion is provided at the end of the workshop. Full hourly attendance mandatory - please do not be late.

MANASAY takes physical safety very seriously and acknowledges that assault can happen to ANY one and in ANY part of life - this includes outside of sex work. As part of MANASAY’s commitment to the sex worker community, the purpose of this workshop is to provide self-defence skills as a preventative measure for sex workers to protect themselves if ever a situation arises where their physical wellbeing is at risk. MANASAY also acknowledges that many sex workers are capable of handling escalated situations. This course is designed to provide added peace of mind in the same way all self defence courses are designed to protect and build confidence in personal safety.
