Women's Self-Defence Training

For Women, By Women

Guardian Defence has a long history of providing reality based self-defence training to women, beginning as 'Fight Like A Girl' in 2006. Since then we have had the privilege of providing training to thousands of women, with many going on to become high ranked students and instructors. 

All of our sessions are female friendly with a strong focus on being an inclusive, safe and welcoming space for all genders. We also run training specifically for those female identified on a regular basis.

With several female instructors on staff, female students also have the opportunity to book private tuition with a female instructor if they so choose. Just let us know when booking.
