The Street Smart syllabus teaches you how to deal with the worse case scenarios.

When all the awareness, avoidance & de-escalation fails & suddenly it turns violent & physical, you realise have no other option but to fight back & get yourself to safety.

Self-Defence & Close Quarters Combat Workshops, Courses & Classes throughout New Zealand...

The self-defence workshops and courses we run are nothing like your typical self-defence course, from the very start you'll realise our instructors are extremely passionate and knowledgeable. They are also certified in their disciplines and make sure all the attendees feel comfortable, enjoy themselves and get the most they can out of it. The workshops and courses are a practical, hands-on experience where you learn fast, effective and easy to remember self-defence techniques. These techniques are so incredibly simple that you'll have the ability to use them straight away. 

Rape, criminal attacks, domestic violence and bullying are on the increase throughout New Zealand and with a little bit of knowledge along with the practical application of techniques coached at S.A.F.E Self Defence, participants will be able to feel more confident and safer at home, on the street, in college and at their place of work.
