The Self Defence For Schools Program is suitable for children as young as 3 years old to college, and university students. We manage the program to according to age and group energy.
We teach through fun and positive motivation to ensure your students have a great experience learning more about self defence and finding their voice in confronting situations.
We pride ourselves in creating a program that not only empowers students but also makes them think about the importance of attitude and confidence. Our main aim is to educate students on conflict resolution and what to do in situations when they feel unsafe.
Our Self Defence For Schools Program specialises in instilling a sense of self-respect, self-confidence, and a healthy respect for others into all students. Every one of our classes are designed to be enjoyable and fun with lots of great content thrown in.
The format of Self Defence For Schools Program is flexible and can customised to suit the needs of your school, the time available, age of students, and your desired outcomes.
This program hands on and requires your students to participate in skills and discussions regarding personal safety.
All equipment is provided.
We use striking mitts, kicking shields and floor mats (if required).
Although we are based in Altona North we travel to all areas in Victoria, Australia. For locations outside the greater Melbourne area, a travel fee may apply.

“I would highly recommend the self-defence course organised by the Self-defence hub. Andre was such an engaging facilitator for the young women that participated in our school holiday program. Young people felt empowered coming out of the program and learnt valuable life skills that can implemented in their day to day life.”
