The Women's Street Smart workshops are probably one of the best, practical, comprehensive and informative self-defense workshops for women in New Zealand. The instructors know not to spend too much time talking and utilise as much time as possible demonstrating and making sure everyone masters the techniques are shown.
This workshop is rated R13 and above - so only those aged 13 and above can attend due to the content taught.
These workshops for the last 10 years have been free but unfortunately in 2018 we had someone thinking it would be good fun to book out all the places using false names and email addresses, so from 2019 onwards there will be a small $10 booking fee, I hate having to do this, but it will discourage this type of thing happening again and prevent the idiot from restricting women from registering and attending the workshops.
So what sort of things can you expect to learn at this workshop?
You learn the vital parts of the body - parts of the body that are vulnerable & easy to attack.
Learn how to defend yourself against slaps, punches, pushes & grabs.
Learn to defend yourself against headlock's, hair grabbing, wrist grabs.
Learn how to defend yourself against choke holds.
Learn how to block an attack confidently.
Learn how to use your hands, legs, knees & elbows.
Learn to defend yourself against many other types of attacks with confidence.
Learn effective rape defence techniques
Plus lots more.
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.

This is the tenth year that we've been running the workshops for the community, all you need to take with you is a positive attitude, comfortable clothing, a drinks bottle and towel plus something to eat during the breaks. Please note that the workshop takes people out of their comfort zone and can be both physically and mentally demanding at times.
