We Should All Be Feminists Part 2 – Self Defense Workshop & Discussion

Join the Diversity Series for part 2 of the We Should All Be Feminists event. A short video highlighting “Violence Against Women” by Jackson Katz will be shown. Liz Devillenueve & Mark Fuzie will lead a short discussion based on the video that will lead into a Self Defense Workshop. Gonzalo “GG” and Carly Woolman of Arsenal Jiu Jitsu will run an hour-long self defense workshop that will show you how to defend yourself once someone has a hold of you. The event will be held on Thursday, November 8, 2018 at 5:30pm in the Student Residence Center, Building #30, Cafeteria.

Coach Gonzalo was born and raised in Yakima, WA. He is a certified BJJ instructor whose passion is to see students thrive on the mats and in life. Coach Gonzalo wrestled in high school and fought on the regional MMA circuit before focusing his talents on BJJ training. In addition to teaching both our BJJ classes, Coach Gonzalo is currently pursuing his undergraduate degree at Central Washington University in Ellensburg, WA. Coach Carly is also a Yakima native and co-teaches all our BJJ classes. She’s been training BJJ for about four years and especially values the practical self-defense dimensions of jiu-jitsu. Away from the mats, Coach Carly loves literature and enjoys sharing this love with her West Valley ninth-grade students.
