Upcoming Cincinnati Quest Center Martial Arts Events

 

Elemental Sexual Assault Prevention Program

Saturday, April 27th (12:30pm to 6:00pm)

Elemental is a sexual assault prevention program designed specifically for high school and college students.

We focus on verbal and physical skills, teaching both non-violent and violent responses, for dealing with acquaintance and stranger assaults. Most victims of assault know their assailants, often very well, so any effective prevention program needs to take this into consideration and present options to its participants.

The Elemental program increases student comfort with boundary setting, self-protection, and awareness of the contextual dangers associated with potential assaults.

This program was created by two Ball State sociology professors, along with Cincinnati Quest Martial Art’s head instructor, James Kentoshi Norris, to deal with situations students themselves chose as the most important and relevant.

The cost for this 5 1/2 hour workshop is $99 for one participant, or $174 for two.

Space is limited to 20 participants total, so enroll now by calling 513-671-0239 or going to the Eventbrite page here!
