Self Defence and Empowerment Courses

Be Your Own Hero – Foundation Course (4 hours) 

Perfect for corporate and private events!
Our course sizes are smaller (1-10 or 11-20) so you and your all participants are guaranteed individual & group success. You and your group will each have a quality experience and leave the course feeling more safe, confident, and empowered. You’ll receive tools that are practical, innovative, and based on real-life scenarios.  We use an empowerment model of self-defence and assertiveness – never any fear-based messaging.
Participants will receive the following value and benefits:
  • Feel better able to discern the warning signs of assault
  • Identify and understand the effects of their personality & communication style
  • Develop assertiveness while reducing aggressiveness
  • Build confidence as well as verbal and physical resistance skills
  • Understand the law and their legal rights
  • Added clarity on boundaries and verbal de-escalation techniques
  • Increased ability to protect themselves and speak and act on their own behalf
  • Clarification and alignment of values with self-protection and empowerment
  • A higher level of team unity and enhanced teamwork
  • Learn to recognize, handle and manage fear and feel more physically competent

  • Learn and practice over 20 practical self-defence & protection tools and techniques

"I had never taken a self defense class before, so I had no idea what to expect. The instructors were great -- friendly, informative, professional. There was a great balance of information and first-hand experience. We had lots of opportunity to practice, ask questions and make sure we were comfortable and confident with the skills we were learning. The instructors really encouraged us to get the most out of the experience as well as encouraging each other in the class. I loved watching everyone feel more confident as we realized these were skills that we could do and tools that work. This is a really wonderful course, I highly recommend it to anyone and everyone!"

“I am so Grateful that you created this opportunity! My daughters had an amazing experience! They valued all the information, and the care in which it was delivered. They practised some of their new moves when they got home. I chose to enrol them in your course, not out of fear rather from a place of empowerment. Which they received in abundance! Thank YOU!!”
