Empowering Women Through Self-Defence: Padma Resort Legian’s Exclusive Workshop with Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Champion Simone Julia.

In this modern world, where everything is mostly straightforward, women’s rights sometimes fail to progress as they should. Even today, women still face catcalling for their appearance, not to mention how quickly situations can escalate from verbal to physical. In these kinds of situations, women often freeze up and feel helpless, unsure of what to do. It was in response to this matter that Padma Resort Legian held a Women’s Self-Defence Workshop.

“It can be intimidating to know that you can’t fight a man and beat him, but if you know you can defend yourself against him, I think that’s super important. Because you can carry yourself in the world a little bit differently, have a lot less fear” – Simone Julia, Women Self-Defence Workshop coach.

It’s a new experience for me and my friend. We came just for the sake of curiosity, but the workshop actually was really exciting and might be useful in the future,” said Sintha, one of the participants in the Women Self-Defence Workshop.
