The National Women's Martial Arts Federation (NWMAF) Self-Defense Instructors Conference (SDIC) will begin on Wednesday, July 20th and, new this year, will continue through the end of Special Training (ST) Sunday, July 24th. As in the past, the Self-Defense Empowerment Model Course (SDEMC) will be led by a team of certified self-defense instructors and is required by those seeking NWMAF self-defense certification and open to those looking to learn about NWMAF's empowerment model of self-defense. SDIC is looking to create an exciting program with a balance of physical, interactive, and lecture format sessions. The goals include having a conference, which reflects the values implicit in the feminist/social justice empowerment model of self-defense. These values include the core competencies that focus on understanding the culture of violence and gender-based violence, interconnections of racism, classism, and sexism, LGBTQ inclusion and inclusion of a range of physical abilities and ages.
