If you’d like to spend this weekend learning, changing, and growing, take a look at our compilation of various workshops taking place in the city this weekend. 

Free Self-defense Workshop for Women: In a country where women are killed, beaten, and assaulted on a daily basis, it’s crucial to educate all agents of the society to change their attitude and behavior. Yet until fundamental change has taken place, women need to protect themselves either by sensing threat in advance and taking appropriate action or physically defending themselves when need be. As such, a free self-defense workshop will be held at a martial arts center in Fatih to empower and educate women.
