She Fights Back - Krav Maga Workshop for Women

Learn how to kick ass like Gal Gadot, Gigi Hadid and Jessica Alba! SHE FIGHTS BACK is a fun and powerful self-defence workshop for women that will leave you feeling stronger and empowered.

SHE FIGHTS BACK is a 2.5 hour Krav Maga workshop for women of all ages and fitness levels that will seriously blow your mind. Why? Because it's completely different from your usual women's self defence training. Here, we're not professional fighters or wrestlers, most of us have no prior experience in martial arts and boxing, our fitness level is pretty average and we certainly don't have Jessica Jones superpowers ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

So here's the thing, during our workshop you get to train in a group of 40 to 50 women towards one goal: to have fun while learning deadly self-defence skills and improve your fitness level. Because let's face it, we don't live in a world full of care bears and unicorns, and if we want to keep ourselves (and loved ones) safe we really need to work on our defence skills.

Krav Maga is Israeli and the Hebrew words mean "Contact Combat". It is a world-renowned self defence system that was developed in the Israeli Defence Forces to teach both military and civilians how to escape from common street attacks.

The great thing about Krav Maga is that it's based on your body's natural reaction to danger. So you don't need to master complicated techniques to use it, you'll quickly see that you already possess natural defence reflexes, and our instructors will teach you how to hone them until your defence techniques become instinctual.

As having a good fitness level is a pretty important tool to run away from / neutralise an attacker, we'll work on that too. You'll get to do some basic cardio moves like abs, squats, burpees (oh yeah!), as well as cool fighting stuff like punching, kicking and elbowing pads. One of the things that make Krav Maga fun is that most of the training is done with a partner, so you can bring your bestie, mum, sister and/or boss to the workshop, and we guarantee you'll have a blast and laugh a lot (which is also great for building strong abs)!
