Self-Defense Workshop with AMPHS & POP Gym
Join AMPHS and POP Gym at the Sunset Park Library for an introductory self defense class! We’ll learn some basic self defense skills that will leave you feeling safer and more confident in public. Learn how to safely step up when you or fellow community members encounter physical or verbal assaults, and leave with a free whistle and safety booklet.
Registration is required.
About our partners:
Academy of Medical & Public Health Services (AMPHS) is a not-for-profit health service organization with a triple aim to identify barriers to health and wellness in underserved immigrant communities; coordinate truly needed primary care with social assistance; and deliver care with dignity and empathy to marginalized New Yorkers. Through its community public health interventions, AMPHS lends to the empowerment of individuals and communities to create their own local and culturally-sensitive health and wellness paradigms.
POP Gym is a new project, working towards opening a physical space in Brooklyn that offers free self-defense, fitness, and skill share classes 7 days a week. We believe that everyone should access to skills that are necessary for their survival. Our mission is to open up a space in which folks can attend classes on fitness, self-defense, and a variety of other skill sets. While that dream is a long-way away, we are actively taking steps to reach this goal!
