Train the Trainer
Women Self Defence

Learning the physical skills and mental preparedness to empower yourself & other women

During our interactive Train the Trainer Course you will learn proficient women’s self defence techniques, mental self awareness and the coaching skills to become a Women’s Self Defence Instructor whilst having fun.

This exceptional opportunity to be training with other like-minded women who share the same vision to empower vulnerable communities is the first of its kind offered by a University in Australia. In light of the rising gender based violence against women around the world, this Train the Trainer Course in Women’s Self Defence could not have come at a more appropriate time!

We are seeking people who have physical education, gym or martial arts qualifications and teaching experience (optional) to become one of our trainers. More importantly, the participants must have the vision, compassion and strong desire to equip other women with the physical techniques and mental preparedness to become more confident in their day-to-day living; it’s this mission to empower self and others that will bring true meaning to this program.

This Train the Trainer Course is designed, developed and instructed by Dr Anne Pang, organised by Victoria University and supported by Cultural Intelligence Pty Ltd.

The course aims to help women to develop a high level of physical competence in dealing with common attacks confronting women and the necessary strategies to diffuse potentially dangerous situations.

This program is fully sponsored by Victoria University and there is no charge to the students.
