About the event

Statistics show us that the most commonly used weapon during serious attacks in Australia is the knife. This highly accessible and dangerous weapon can be used to great effect, even by the most unskilled of attackers. This is why becoming confident in facing such a threat is critical to your self-defence journey. We invite you to empower yourself with knowledge and skills that can help you survive such an event.

Krav Maga is a reality-based self-defence system. Originally designed for use within the military, the civilian version provides quick-to-learn, effective defence skills that are not reliant on the strength or size of the defender, making it perfect for women and men alike.

In this event, you will learn the techniques that will assist you in surviving a stabbing or slashing attack, as well as a static threat with a knife.

Whether you are building on skills you already have or are an absolute beginner, we will take you through step by step, giving you the building blocks and skills to survive.

No experience necessary Open to those aged 16 years or older (with parental permission for those under 18 years)
