"...a massive shout out to Charlie Riley from Safe Self Defence & Close Quarters Combat for all the amazing work they do. Charlie, you are a champion among champions. Thank you. Ladies, if you loved #reebokunleashed or if you missed out, please check out Charlie and find a course near you." - Zoe Bell - Hollywood Stunt Woman, Actress & Producer

At the Women's Street Smart workshop, we do not teach you how to go toe to toe with an attacker, or how to trade punches and kicks with someone. The workshop teaches you how to avoid certain situations, to become aware of the environment around you, but most of all it teaches you how to protect yourself or a loved one, should you find yourselves being attacked or assaulted. What we teach is how to deal with the worst-case scenario, when the de-escalation has 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.

The workshop starts at noon on Saturday and then 10am on Sunday. The workshop runs over a two day period, it is advisable to attend both days.

The Women's Street Smart workshops are probably one of the best, practical, comprehensive and informative self-defence workshops for women in New Zealand. Workshops offering only a small amount of what's taught can cost you hundreds of dollars per person elsewhere.
