Self Defence for Teens

Self Defence

for Teens (12-17)

Self Defence training lets our teenagers defend themselves using reflexive body movements designed for real life action. However, if their only tool is a hammer, every problem looks like a nail. That’s why ‘what happens before the ‘fight” is also trained. That way, the teens can choose the best tool for the job at hand.

“So they may walk in peace.”

It’s critically important for young people to know how to stay out of trouble, but also what to do should they get into a physical confrontation. Personal Strength Jujitsu self defence training involves situational awareness, avoidance strategies, mental preparation, verbal dissuasion and effective physical techniques and principles, providing them with a basic toolkit for conflict resolution.

Training topics include:

  • Avoiding different types of attacks and dangerous situations
  • Target Hardening’ – strategies to lower the odds of being attacked
  • Talking your way out of conflict safely
  • Maintaining physical boundaries
  • Natural striking and effective targets

“While the practice of self-defence may not be compatible with every personality,
ignoring the need for self-defence skills will not make our young people safe from violence.”

The goals of Personal Strength Jujitsu training for teens also extend to:

  • Developing positive self-esteem, self-confidence and self-discipline
  • Developing a person as a positive role model
  • Creating expertise in confrontation management and effective communication
  • Developing healthy community attitudes and values

Self defence training for teens allows our young people greater freedom with greater safety.

UPDATE: it's been almost 5 years since I left this review. We're still going strong! I'm still training with Tim 💪 My now 10-year-old son is still doing Ninjas classes 👍 Great local gym with a very welcoming environment. I've been training with Tim for almost 2 years and I always enjoyed his personalised approach which helped me to achieve my goals. Tim is always very encouraging and makes each training session challenging, but rewarding. Apart from training adults, Tim is excellent working with kids and my 5.5yo son is always looking forward for his next Little Ninjas classes, which he started as a 3-year-old. Kids classes are always fun, with a mix of games and various exercises teaching self-awareness and safety. I would definitely recommend FunFit to everyone.

Tim always keeps the workouts fresh and interesting and was always committed to safety. Workouts were always challenging but catered to the level you were at. Never a boring session and looked forward to them always. Great community feel and music too! Only reason I'm not going anymore is because I moved to the other side of Sydney.

Both my 4 year old girl and 6 year boy absolutely love the classes. They've done lots of other activities over the years but there's something about being a little ninja that makes them light up and they enjoy every minute of the class.
