Brisbane Ladies Kicking It At Women’s-Only Self-Defence Workshop



On Saturday 9 October, Brisbane ladies assembled at Kung Fu Brisbane’s studio for their fun and practical Women’s-Only Self-Defence Workshop. Our martial arts trainers created a new workshop which included practical self-defence techniques and tactics. The self-defence techniques were based on Wing Chun Kung Fu principles. The Kung Fu techniques covered in the seminar, employed leverage, technique, and timing so that anyone can make them work against larger and stronger opponents regardless of age and physical build.


Our focus was teaching a few practical ways for women to guard themselves from unwanted situations. We handpicked a few techniques that the ladies could use in real-life situations. We also taught the ladies protective behaviours and strategies to help avoid unsafe and dangerous situations.

IWKA for Women is more than just Self-Defence

We wanted the ladies to get more out of their self-defence workshop and not just focus on the external and physical techniques. Our IWKA’s women's self-defence workshop provided women also valuable health and wellbeing benefits like:

· a fun and social group training environment

· improved confidence after the workshop

· improved general fitness

· stress release

· focus on physical and mental self-defence tactics
