From brush offs, right down to worst case scenario, we are going to show you just how much power you do have.
    • Situational Awareness – develop your situational intuition & keep yourself safe

    • Respectful Relationships – red flags, green flags and what to do about them
    • Consent – what is consent and what you can do if your consent is being ignored or challenged
    • Reporting pathways and accessing help – find out what is available in our community – help when & how you need it.
    • Sister Support – meet a group of like minded kick ass women who will have your back from this day forward.

Frequently Asked Questions

How is this different to other Self Defence Courses?

Most self defence courses only focus on the physical aspect of safety. Not only do we cover the psychology of violence, we also include:

  • Situational awareness
  • Mental & emotional wellness
  • Relationship skills
  • Self esteem building
  • Body image improvement
  • Resilience & confidence

Not only that, we are very proud to be one of the only programs in NSW with ALL female instructors, who are also highly specialised practitioners in the domestic violence and sexual assault sectors. Lily Isobella, our head instructor is one of only 4 fully qualified female Pure Reality Based Self Defence Instructors in the country, so you can be assured you will be training with the very best.


Is this martial arts?

No.

The physical systems we learn during the day have been developed from close quarter fighting styles, and are based on realistic “street” scenarios. There is a huge focus on preventing violence and aggression, situational awareness, and using realistic survival strategies.


Will I get hurt?

You only participate at a level that is comfortable and safe for you. In one session trainings we are completely non-contact between participants – you will have a chance to give our instructors a good smack though (they are tough and can take a hit!)


I have been assaulted in the past...

Whilst our instructors are trauma informed trainers, we request you chat to us before registering. We firmly believe the Warrior training to be a powerful addition to recovery and we would love to see every survivor attend. We pride ourselves on your safety – emotionally and mentally as well as your physical safety. We run special Survivor Warrior trainings throughout the year and we request that you consider training at one of these sessions if you feel vulnerable in large groups or with touch.

Please contact Lily directly to talk about where you are at with your journey, and which training will be most suitable for you.


Do I need to be fit to attend?

NO!! This is not a fitness course, this is a life skills course. You can come along in any state.

You will be challenged in a fun and safe environment and you will be asked to tell us about any pre-existing physical conditions or illnesses that might impact on your ability to participate fully.


What should I wear?

Loose comfortable clothing and sports shoes

Minimal or no jewellery

Hair tied back or bring ties with you


What should I bring?

Any attendee under the age of 18 will need a parent or guardian to sign their registration form. These will be emailed to you at least one week prior to the event.

You will need a water bottle & for the Warrior training you will need a healthy light lunch as well as snacks.

One child, every single day, held safe.

One young life seen, valued & protected.

That is how we started.

In 2017, Lily Isobella, our founder & chief Ignition Switch made a personal promise to do everything she could, every single day, to prevent the sexual assault of young people. And that is what we continue to do today. Nationally, The One a Day Project empowers schools, families and organisations to prevent the sexual assault of the young people within their care. We are a team of renegades, activists, educators, street fighters, scholars & passionate change makers.

We are tireless.

We are driven.

We are committed.

Through powerful education programs, community engagement measures & integrated learning opportunities, we affect change. We shine a light on the darkness of this problem by continually creating positive & robust conversations about healthy sexuality & its place in prevention. Our team take a personal responsibility for the scope of this problem, as we believe that it’s solution will require a whole of community paradigm shift, and we are critically aware of our place in that.

We deeply believe in the impact individuals can make when they do all they can, all of the time.

One action, every single day, in the service of those most vulnerable.

One child held safe, every single day.

Welcome to The One A Day Project.
