We don't think that the world should be a scary place and we certainly don't want to scare people into learning self-defence. Our club is built on the belief that we can combine fitness, fun and training for effective self-defence in a friendly and supportive atmosphere.
We teach physical techniques, but we understand and teach that self-defence is at least as much about awareness and attitude as it is about physical ability. We teach and train to hone our self-defence attitudes, skills, habits and, yes techniques, not out of fear, but because of all the positive benefits we gain from our training -- benefits that not only keep us safe, but, more importantly, pay off in many other aspects of our daily lives. In addition to the self-defence component of our weekly martial arts classes we offer a monthly 2 hour self-defence class as well a open self-defence workshops most months.
What you learn is not how to hurt someone who poses a threat but practical, real world self-defence: first, avoid danger; if that's not possible, minimize the risk of injury; and create an opportunity to escape.
We are open to all ages: women, men and youth with no age, fitness level or ability restrictions. Come with a sister or brother, a son or daughter, a colleague or a friend. You'll enjoy training together and practising together outside of class.
