SAFE Self-Defence &
Close Quarters Combat

Women's Street Smart Self-Defence

Every year S.A.F.E Self-Defence & Close Quarters Combat run their Women's Street Smart workshops for communities throughout New Zealand. These workshops can span over a one or two day period and covers a large, comprehensive syllabus. The workshops are fun, informative but most of all it's hands on working with techniques that are easy to learn, easy to apply and easy to remember. The workshops do take people out of their comfort zone very quickly, and can be both mentally and physically demanding for some people.

What we teach is how to deal with the worst-case scenario, when the awareness, avoidance and de-escalation have failed, there's no obvious way to escape and it all turns physical.

Workshops and courses are structured to suit corporates, non-profits, educational facilities and local communities whose females are aged 13 years and older. The syllabus taught deals with the most common attacks on women and also includes a rape defence and knife defence module.
