Across New Zealand unfortunately criminal attacks, domestic violence, sexual assault and bullying are on the increase affecting all corners of society and all ages. We aim to provide participants with a little bit of knowledge so that they will be able to feel more confident and safer at home, on the street and at their place of work.

Each of the techniques are easy to learn, easy to remember and easy to execute

At the Women’s Self Defence workshop, we do not teach you how to fight one on one with an attacker. The workshop teaches you how to avoid certain situations, how to protect yourself or a loved one should you find yourselves being attacked or assaulted. When the de-escalation has failed what next? We teach how to deal with the worst case scenario, there’s no obvious way to escape and it all turns physical.

Learn something to get yourself out of trouble in our 2 hour workshop teaching you ways to protect yourself and your loved ones. All you need to bring with you is a positive attitude, comfortable clothing, a drinks bottle and towel plus something to eat during the breaks. Please note that the workshop takes people out of their comfort zone and can be both physically and mentally demanding at times. Register now, call Chris on 021 823 857.

My 8 and 5 year old absolutely love karate with Chris and Co. They enjoy the physical aspect and the conversations about respect, responsibility etc. Have recommended it to lots of our friends
