This workshop runs over a two-day period, the syllabus taught on day one carries through to day two. We do realise not everyone can commit to the two days, so if you were to choose a day then we suggest attending day two. Please note that you only need to register for Saturday and that will cover you for both days.

The Women's MINDSETSelf-Defence workshop is probably the most intense, comprehensive, enjoyable & hands-on women's self-defence syllabus in New Zealand & Australia. The instructors know not to spend too much time talking and utilise as much time as possible demonstrating and making sure everyone master's the techniques shown.

This workshop is rated R13 so only those aged 13 and above can attend due to the content taught.

So, what sort of things can you expect to learn at this workshop?

You learn the vital parts of the body - parts of the body that are vulnerable & easy to attack.
Learn how to block an attack confidently.
Learn how to defend yourself against slaps, punches pushes & grabs.
Learn to defend yourself against headlocks, hair grabbing, and wrist grabs.
Learn how to defend yourself against chokeholds, and bear hugs.
Learn how to defend yourself on the ground.
Learn effective rape defence techniques.
Learn how to use your hands, legs, knees & elbows as weapons.
Learn to defend yourself against many other types of attacks with confidence.

Plus, lots, lots more. (depending on the time allowed & the participant's progression)
What we teach is how to deal with the worst-case scenario, when the awareness, avoidance, and de-escalation have failed, it all turns physical, there's no obvious way to escape & you must fight back.

This is the fifteenth year that we've been running workshops for the community, all you need to take with you is a positive attitude, comfortable clothing, a drinks bottle & towel plus something to eat during the breaks. Please note that the workshop takes people out of their comfort zone & can be both physically & mentally demanding at times if unsure seek your doctor's advice before undertaking any form of physical training or have a word with the instructor.
