Self Defence Programme
What is #FightLikeAGirl?
Fight like a girl began as a campaign where Sifu Della was encouraging women and young girls of all backgrounds to feel confident and comfortable to step foot in a room to learn martial arts.
How did it begin?
Coming from her experience of being stalked as a young girl and from meeting other women who have had trauma and violence in their life, she realised how daunting it can be to walk into a gym with the pre-conceived idea that it would be mostly a male environment, and although the intention is to encourage women to later integrate with men to learn martial arts. Della wanted to allow a space for women to be taught by her and in an environment they would feel comfortable with at this first stage.
What will I learn?
The courses and workshops are designed to tackle common attacks and problems women would likely face in a violent or dangerous situation.
EVERYTHING taught is effective and efficient and does not require physical strength!
All the techniques, theories and strategies you will learn in the #FightLikeAGirl Workshop are based on years of experience and understanding. I know from personal experience what it means to feel vulnerable and scared… and what it means to take back control and be empowered. This workshop will give you a clear understanding of your strengths… and how to use them.
One of the best ways we, as ladies, can defend ourselves is by using our opponent’s strength against them. Brute force is not necessary. This #FightLikeAGirl Women’s Self-defence Seminar will get you on the right track to develop the ability the take care of yourself in any situation.
What can I expect?
Each workshop and course will instil you with the essential ingredients you need to defend yourself. We’ll start with key principles of self-defence, top tips to stay safe, and the importance of self-belief and motivation. But that’s not all, because you will…
"Above all, be the heroine of your life,
not the victim."
Develop Practical Self-defence Techniques
While understanding how to avoid danger is important, you still need to develop skills in order to be sure you are safe.
That’s why we are going to practice, practice, practice…
…and Have a Blast Doing It!
