This 2hr workshop is the perfect introduction to self-defence for women who want to learn with other beginners in a fun, safe and supportive environment.
We believe the best results come from empowering the individual. So during this short course, you will learn various essential self-defence techniques as well as relevant skills that directly relate to your lifestyle and circumstances.
You'll start by learning basic self-defence moves that you can put into practice right away. You will train with a small beginner’s group for a more personalised and thorough experience. We focus on relevant and realistic street-smart self-defence. You will have freedom to ask questions as we go so you get the answers you need.
This self defence workshop covers:
- Dealing with an escalating situation
- Wrist grab escape
- Defence from holds against the wall
- Weapon avoidance
- Body language & communication
- Basic grab defence and strikes
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?

I can’t tell you how profound that experience was… what Andre did for us was shift a mindset for me just by teaching us basic moves it made me really understand that I’m not a victim, no matter what happens I can actually engage with whatever is happening and I can fight back. She really showed us how. It was amazing! It just changed my mind completely and I’ll never forget that experience.

Andre's women's self defence class was highly educational but also really fun. The two hour class flew by... Highly recommend trying out one of Andre's classes if you want to feel better equipped to defend yourself in a range of potentially dangerous situations. Thanks Andre!
