Training Programs | Points to Remember



Aikido training for women and young girls emphasises a way of protecting themselves using a system that they can practice every day in almost any situation you can think of.

Learning specific fighting techniques can assist some women, but for many it can be very intimidating. When a situation does ocur many women may still tend to freeze or if trying to remember what they learnt could be too late to do something.

We teach a system of correct posture and movement that can, in many cases greatly reduce the likelihood of an attack without the need to learn many different techniques.

When asked about self-defence many people automatically assume its about fighting or a way system of defending yourself from a 'physical' attack. Unfortunately it is the hidden forms that happen to many of us everyday that we do not know how to defend ourselves from. Such as;
  • verbal abuse
  • mental and psychological abuse and
  • emotional
When we are physically injured it can be seen and when repaired or healed it is assumed to be over. The unfortunate aspect is that verbal, mental and emotional abuse does not leave scars that can been seen. These can take months, years or in some cases a lifetime to heal.

Aikido is an art of harmony and peace, one of conflict resolution. It teaches how to be confident and strong inside. If you try to fight someone bigger and stronger than you, the chances are you will not win, but real strength does not come from muscles it come from the mind. Even physically strong people still have their limits.

The mind can be developed like the muscles in the body and the results 'will be' hundreds of times more powerful. The beauty of this system is that you can practice it from the moment you open your eyes in the morning, throughout your entire day from talking on the phone to doing the gardening.

But weather you learn this system or not, there are still many things you can do to protect yourself and prevent a possible attack.

Points to remember!

Predators can be watching you anytime. Always be on your guard, especially in shopping centre car parks, this can be a perfect opportunity for them.


Women can have a tendency to get into their cars after shopping and just sit (doing their cheque book, or making a list, etc.).
A few notes about getting into your car in a parking lot, or parking garage:
IT IS ALWAYS BETTER TO BE SAFE THAN SORRY. (and better paranoid than dead.)
