A workshop on Self Defence for women was conducted by Broadridge Financial Solutions (India) Private Limited at their Hi-tech city campus on Thurday. As an initiative under Broadridge India’s Gender Inclusivity program – ADVIKA, the workshop aimed at women empowerment on both a psychological and physical level. The idea behind the workshop was to train women for risky situations that they might encounter in their lives. There were two sessions in the workshop that lasted for four hours on the whole. The first session focused upon the psychological strengthening whereas the second dealt with physical strengthening. The training team specialised in martial arts and defense training measures for women.
As many as 25 women participated in the workshop, concentrating upon unforeseen attacks like those in isolated areas like parking spaces and parks, or even multiple attackers. In the next batch of workshop, both genders will be trained.
