I can see Freya has been getting lots from the self defence program. She has initiated a lot of conversation about what you’ve been covering in classes, which is great. Thanks for running the program.

Thank you for having Kyra… she thoroughly enjoyed the course.

Self Defence for Teen Girls

Learn to Defend Yourself!

Younger women are statistically at a higher risk of assault and specifically sexual assault in our communities. Self defence and martial art skills often take a long time to master but the YWCA Hunter runs a well-designed self defence program that can offer skills designed for rapid learning and targeted to some common strengths and abilities. Our self defence classes include personal skills alongside physical self defence skills.

Please note there are only 20 places available, book in ASAP so you don’t miss out!

Our enrolment form is at the bottom of this page.
