Self Defence Workshop for Mums and Daughters

An important part of the teenage years is connecting more and more with peers, and building independence from family. This is a scary time for parents, and can be a risky time for teens. Self defence training can help you and your daughter to recognise, de-escalate, and avoid dangerous situations, and physically stand up for yourselves when necessary.

Studies show a relationship between self defence or assertiveness training and women’s physical and psychological responses to subsequent attacks.

Victims with pre-assault training were less likely to be assaulted (1) and more likely to resist (2). Further, that resistance stopped the offender or made him less aggressive than victims without training (2). Women with training before the assaults were angrier and less scared during the incident than women without training (2). Learning self defence skills can make a difference. Keeping them sharp and effective can change lives.
