Tutor - Morgan Libeau

Give your daughter the opportunity to learn: to identify unsafe/safe people and situations, ways to resist unwanted or uncomfortable touch, how to use verbal and physical ways to deal with assault or abuse, how to say no! in unsafe situations, remain calm, and tell a trusted adult.

A serious subject dealt with in a fun way for girls aged 7-12.

Comments from previous participants about what they liked:

"I liked the class because it was all girls taught to be safe. I liked my teacher."

"Standing strong, roleplaying, shin and knee kick, punching. Drawing meeting new people, lunch."

"Blocking, punching, shouting, kicking, my favourite is having lunch, and learning how to keep safe."

Comments from parents/caregivers:

"Boosted self and other awareness. Improved self-confidence. Thanks!"

"Confidence in her ability to deal with 'difficult situations' and more awareness that these exist! Enjoyed seeing her strong and powerful."

"(name) has experienced an increase in confidence subsequent to her first self-defence course. In addition, she takes more pleasure, satisfaction and interest in her own physical strength and prowess.
