Equip yourself to deal with a potential violent situation!



Statistics show that violent crime and sexual assault are on the increase.  From walking home after work, walking to the local shops, nights out with friends to the growing out door running trend, women are becoming more at risk, this is compounded with the dark evenings.

Due to this it is becoming imperative for women to equip themselves with the skills to be more aware of potential situations, diffuse this if possible and if they are unlucky enough to be involved in a violent incident, to be able to effectively deal with that situation.

This course looks at educating and empowering you, so that you are able to make dynamic risk assessments of the situations you might find yourself in where harmful intent may be present.

We offer a one day intensive course that aims to introduce women to an array of usable skills to improve their personal safety, from violent and sexual assaults to potentially abusive partners. Each course has a maximum of 25 people allowing for effective 121 coaching. Once this one day course is completed you are then eligible to attend our quartely half day workshops to keep you current and practice the skills you have acquired.

It will impart information you need to help you identify and avoid violence before it occurs. The focus of the course is on:

  • Creating an understanding and adopting personal safety habits that will firstly reduce your risk of being identified as a target

  • Assist you if you are targeted to defuse the situation

  • And then if necessary teach you effective techniques that will enable you to deal with an attacker.

We cover different skill sets required for effective self-protection and personal safety stacking them to enable instinctive application when required.  At the end of the program you should feel more aware, more confident and empowered.

The course will cover the following areas:

  • Safety awareness in daily life

  • Assertiveness

  • Victim mentality

  • Understanding the violent mind

  • How to handle aggression

  • Identification of risk situations & their avoidance

  • A range of easy to remember, intuative and highly effective physical self-defence techniques

You do not have to be fit to take part,  just keen to learn how to feel more safe and secure on the streets and in your home.

"The Women’s self defence class run by Warwick-TKD is fantastic. I have been meaning to learn some self defence since being mugged at knife point by two men in Birmingham a few years ago and had never got around to it. The course has improved my confidence when I am out running alone in the day and night time and also generally when walking alone. Knowing how to react to situations you may find yourself in is invaluable and, whilst you hope you will never need to use them, knowing you could handle a situation is very comforting. The teaching is first rate with demonstrations first and then having the opportunity to practice moves until they become second nature. I would highly recommend the course to anyone wishing to learn a new skill, become more confident and have fun."  

"If you're thinking of completing this course, DO IT, its an investment in you. If you think you do not have time, make time for you, be empowered. If you think you can't afford the course fee, can you afford not to..... I think it is really important that as women we all know how to protect ourselves against anyone who wants to cause us harm.  This course is a fun way of learning some very important life skills, which enables you to be that one step ahead."

"A wholly worthwhile and potentially life saving course. Techniques taught are easy to follow and practical for all ages and fitness levels. I would highly recommend this course, you can't put a price on your own welfare and safety but if I could then this course would be great value for money."

The Self Defence classes are fun, practical and good exercise. Each week I felt more confidant and empowered.  Highly recommend!
