Would you llike us to host an event for you?

We offer reality based Self Defence seminars and workshops across Melbourne. WSDN was created to empower women with knowledge to stay safe, but our focus is to teach as many people as possible these potentially life saving techniques and principles. So that means we are talking to all of you guys, chicks, teenagers and children out there.  

Our focus is to provide information that helps women tap into their innate personal intuitiveness of themselves and their surroundings. Prevention is always better than the cure! Planning is the key to success and the avoidance of failure. If we make simple plans about our personal safety, most of the time this pre-emptive foresight can help us avoid violent conflict for ourselves and those we care about. This area is truly the most important part of Self Protection and should contain more focus than any physical technique or violent retaliation. We aren’t here to breed Ninjas but to get you home safe!!!!

​The mental is by far and away the most important aspect when discussing Self Protection of any individual, not just women but the reality is women (on average) are going to be at a distinct disadvantage when under attack by a male perpetrator. There are the obvious truths of size, weight, and possibly aggression but also the fact that the attacker has already planned this, he is already at the “Go” stage of his plan and you can rest assured that the attack will take place when you are at your most vulnerable! You are playing catch up!!! Our teachings are aimed at avoidance but also gaining back any lost advantage as quickly as possible. It’s not about the “Win” it’s about the “Escape” as quickly and safely as possible.

​Yes, we are huge on the planning, the mental elements, and the awareness but rest assured when it is time to GO we will teach you to go with everything you’ve got!!! Your mindset and physical abilities will switch to “I’m going home safe” mode, “I will survive this” by whatever means possible.

When it's go time, we will teach you to go with everything you have got!
Feel Empowered


Taking control of your safety is extremely empowering. Not knowing what to do in a particular situation can make you feel helpless. 

Feel Informed


The more we talk about Self Protection, the more seeds we plant in our brain that we can call on if and when we need to. 

Feel Safe


You are going to feel so much safer when you have a plan of what you need to do to avoid a violent encounter, and what to do in a violent encounter.

Some of the awesome things you are going to learn:

+  Self awareness and your surroundings
+  How to use your voice as a weapon
+  Threat assessment - pre-incident indicators
+  Understanding the mind of the predator
+  What they are looking for in a victim
+  Effective striking, holds, chokes and escapes
+  Ground control – evasion and escape
+  Improvised weapons
Whilst this is a serious topic, we are all about making it FUN!!!

 NOTE: topics will vary depending on the length of the session

"We have had an abundance of positive feedback with regards to the personal safety and self defence session that was held by the Womens Self Defence Network at Empowering Women In Property 2019.

I felt that it was super important to include a session that involved teaching women about their personal safety and how to defend themselves or even better, teaching them how to prevent having to defend themselves whilst being out and about either at work or in their personal time.

These are the types of things we weren't taught in school but are so crucial to be aware of especially in a role like property management where women are opening properties alone and allowing people they've never met to walk in or conducting open for inspections in the privacy of someones home where unfortunately, things can go wrong.

If you haven't armed your team with this type of knowledge, information and the tools to prevent an unsafe situation from escalating, I urge you to reach out to Rachel Kealy from the Women's Self Defence Network to book in a session with her and her team - you'll sleep better at night knowing you and your team have these tools to call upon if you ever need them 👊"
