Wellesley High self defense class subject of new documentary

Wellesley High School fitness & health teacher Kathy Brophy‘s new documentary (“Embracing Our Strength”) on her PowerUp self-defense class has popped up on YouTube here. (Warning: The actions and language in the video may be disturbing to you.)

The course, which has been available at Wellesley High for at least the past few years, teaches students how to stand up for themselves in violent encounters or other intimidating situations, such as bullying.

Brophy’s efforts on the program were recognized recently at a Wellesley School Committee meeting.
