About Andre Conate andre conate smiling sq

There aren't too many female self defence instructors especially ones that have been teaching for over 25 years. This is why Andre decided to set up a studio specifically for women to learn self defence in a fun and safe environment. 

She knows what it's like to go to male dominated gyms and she saw the discomfort and oftentimes triggering ways traditional self defence instructors would teach so she decided enough was enough.

She establised Self Defence Hub to empower women and girls to help them realise the power they hold within. It's not uncommon for participants to be surprised how effective their strikes can be and that's what motivates Andre to continue teaching.


Is there any contact in this class?

There is precision striking on training pads. During this workshop you will be testing self defence moves so there is contact with others in the program. There will also be light contact if we go through basic knife defence but there is no point in the class that you will be hurt.

I have never had martial arts lessons before, is this right class for me?

We run through skills for people wanting to learn street smart self defence skills in a supportive environment. If you would like to gain some new skills with a great group of people then this is the program for you.

This workshops suits all fitness levels and little to no level of previous experience.
