Self Defence Hub was founded in January 2014 by Andre Conate, who has an extraordinary passion for people's empowerment and safety.
Looking at the Australian national statistics of crimes (particularly against women), Andre knew there needed to be a safe environment where everyone can learn self defence. Having studied martial arts for over 20 years she felt that she was the most qualified person to bring this empowering environment to life. She wanted everyone to feel safe and capable of self protection if any situation called for it.
Clubs listed in the directory offer private lessons, short courses or regular group self defence classes at locations.
We understand that trying a self defence class can be daunting...
but you can have complete confidence that we will take you though each step with thorough guidence and expert knowledge of over 20 years experience. There are no egos in the group. We support each other and empower one another.
Testimonials from past participants
My daughter and I enrolled in a four week course run by the Self Defence Hub. Our instructor, Andre was a wonderful teacher who provided clear and useful instructions whilst creating a friendly, cooperative environment with the other students; it was both an enjoyable and empowering experience.
I would highly recommend this course for all women interested in self defence.

I enjoyed the experience and now feel much more confident in defending myself, even though it was only one session. I highly recommend it to beginners.
