In addition perhaps wear or bring something from Shetland/Orkney, maybe clothing, jewellery or whatever and you may like to tell us about it.

The meeting will finish with supper, and it would be appreciated if you could bring a small plate of finger food to share.

Women/Girls Free Self Defence 2 Day Workshop

Saturday, September 19, 2015 to Sunday, September 20, 2015

Where: Logan Park High School, 74 Butts Rd, North Dunedin, Dunedin
Restrictions: R13
Ticket Information: Workshop Admission: $0.00

The S.A.F.E Self Defence workshops are a friendly, educational environment, where instructors know that some of the participants may have already been a victim, they know not to spend too much time talking and utilise as much time as possible demonstrating and practising.

So what sort of things can you expect to learn at the two day workshops?
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 against static knife hold-ups
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 Awareness, Avoidance and De-Escalation skills plus lots lots more...

Each of the techniques is easy to learn, easy to remember and easy to execute
At the S.A.F.E workshop we do not teach you how to go toe to toe with an attacker, or how to trade punches and kicks with someone. S.A.F.E 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.

This is the fifth year that we've been running the free 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.

Starts 10.00am finishes at 4.00pm both days

Note: You only need to register for the Saturday class, this will cover you for both Saturday & Sunday. The workshop runs over a two day period, it is advisable to attend both days as the syllabus is different.
