Women's Self-Defence Workshop

Hear what others have to say about our Self-Defence Programs:

"Very realistic view of possible situations and how to defend yourself in them."

Samuel Fiddin

"This should be a must for every female. Often, we think that unpleasant encounters won’t happen to us, however, they can and do. Don’t get into a state of shock or powerlessness when these things happen. Be prepared by having the knowledge!"

Krissie Cao

"A great way to improve your preparedness in the event of something happening out of your control."

- Tim Craig

"I really enjoyed it and would definitely recommend to all my friends!"

Meg Clarke

"Do it! It’s definitely something everyone should have a go at, not just for themselves, but for friends and family too."

– George Goonan

"As a person with a martial arts background, I found it very informational and I feel more able to avoid bad situations & I have a plan it it came to it. Self-Defence education and training is a must for all the people you love."

– Yahvinah Morris

"I learnt how to defend and not to automatically be afraid of someone larger. I think it’s great for women to be aware of what they can do and this program will achieve that for them."

Tina Okey

"I feel more empowered now!"

Jessica Quigley

"Excellent workshop – very helpful & practical. Excellent tutors."

Lauren Taylor

"The most important thing I learnt was that if I change my mindset, I have the power / possibility of changing the outcome. I found that practicing the techniques & talking through the stages made me feel more secure in my ability and less afraid."

Jemma Gullen

"It is really eye-opening and something everyone should know. The trainers are great and easy to understand."

Roxanne Betts
