Increasing resilience

Resilience training is learning how to empower yourself mentally and physically so that you can act appropriately in case of transgressive behaviour. Martial arts are used as a learning tool.

Course content:

– What is transgressive behavior and how does it relate to you?
– Review strategies of transgressive behavior?
– How to act on transgressive behavior.
– Working self-confidence and self-esteem.

Experiential learning:

We use exercises, games and methods from martial arts to let you experience what works and what doesn’t. So not just talking but foremost lots of doing.


Depending on the theme, you may be given a homework assignment in preparation for the next lesson.
