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 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
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
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.
