Damini Project-Women's Self Defense

Posted on 5th, May 2015

The Damini Project – Women’s Safety, Equality & Empowerment.

We are a group of Instructors, Activists, Concerned Community Members, Mothers, Fathers, and Siblings working together to effect a dramatic and permanent shift in the current climate of Rape Culture. The project bares the name of one particularly tragic case in India, The Damini Project represents every woman, man, and child that has been or may be sexually assaulted, harassed, or victimized in any way. The time has come for all of us to find our inner strength, stand up, and have our voices heard, so that we may change the perceptions behind gender inequality, violence, abuse, and objectification that silently oppress so many of our brothers and sisters in the world.

Here, you will find Self Defense information, Instructor and Event information, and a support network designed to provide you with reality-based, effective tactics and techniques to fend off unwanted attacks, non-violent communication techniques to assist in deescalating potentially dangerous situations, and a path to healing from potentially traumatic events in your history or that of your loved ones. More importantly, we are here to help you find your Inner Strength. We promote Women’s Safety, Equality & Empowerment by teaching Self Defense Seminars based on our ETGS Course.
