Empowering Women, Inspiring Change Padma Resort Legian Held a Self Defense Workshop for Women

In this modern world, where everything is mostly easy, sometimes women’s rights aren't progressing 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-Defense Workshop.

At Padma Resort Legian, we are committed to inspiring every woman, engaging in sports not only has a positive impact on our physical well-being but also influences our mental health, contributing to an enhanced mood. We firmly believe that a content body leads to a joyful mind. This unique opportunity is to empower women and contribute to the celebration of International Women's Day in a proactive and meaningful way.

“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 super important. Because you can carry yourself in the world a little bit differently, have a lot less fear” - Simone Julia, Women Self Defense Workshop coach.
