Self-defence course for black women

zelfverdedigingscursussen bij kenau (1981)

The Kenau foundation was founded in 1981, with the aim of increasing the physical and mental resistance of women and girls by teaching them self-defence and martial arts. It was their belief that through this initiative, a contribution could be made to prevent (sexual) violence against women.

As of 1985, Kenau began to aim at more specific target groups, such as girls aged 8-12 and 13-17 years, overweight women, lesbian women, black women, women over 50, older women and disabled women.
