DAR women employees learn self-defense

piaNEGROS OCCIDENTAL, Aug. 30 (PIA6) - - Two hundred women personnel of the Department of Agrarian Reform-Negros Occidental 2 learned self-defense as part of their Gender Awareness and Development enhancement program.

The Self-Preservation and Survival Techniques on Street Attacks training was held for three batches on August 23-25 at the Sugarland Hotel, a release from DAR said.

The training aimed to equip women personnel with strategies to adopt under different adverse circumstances.

Municipal Agrarian Reform Program Officer and Aikido black belter Serlito Delos Santos served as trainer and shared his techniques to female colleagues.

According to DAR Chief Administrative Officer Celin Figueroa, the conduct of the training is in line with Republic Act 9710 or Magna Carta of Women which empowers and protects women and ensures equal rights and opportunities for both sexes.

“This is conducted to further create an opportunity for participants to receive information that may reduce their risk of exposure to violence and to equip them of theories, techniques and skills of self-defense which can be used in times of crisis or danger,” Figueroa said.

Figueroa added that the conduct of self-defense training is crucial for women personnel of DAR considering the risky nature of work in the department is especially those who are assigned at municipal offices or field offices. *(JCM/EAD-PIA6 Negros Occidental)
