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.
This self defence course 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
We all happily completed the self defence workshop with more confidence in our ability to handle difficult situations. This workshop is very empowering for young women like myself and I'm grateful I got to learn new skills knowledge from the one and only Andre, so thank you !!
- Gabrielle Grant, 4 Week Self Defence Course
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.
