February 25-26th 10.00-5.00 pm
Literally Wen-Do means «the way of woman». This method includes both social and political context and teaches women to confront not only sexual violence but also psychological and economic violence, which are not obvious but in the case of domestic violence often are immediate harbingers of physical attacks.Wen-do guides to warning: each woman creates for herself such a psychological behavior pattern at training sessions, which makes impossible violence against her.
«Situations of social pressure are so common in everyday life that are no longer recognized by women as an infringement of their privacy and personal dignity»,- outlines the problem Lanevskih Olga, a teacher of the female self-defense Wen-Do.
Indeed, while the human rights organizations overlook the facts of violence,the situation only gets worse.
