Summer Self Defence Boot Camp for High School Girls

Self-Defence Bootcamp for year 6 & 7’s

2020 Jujitsu Grading

Philotimo Freestyle Jujitsu is hosting a Self-Defence Bootcamp over the January 2024 school holidays.  The course is aimed at building skills and confidence in girls heading to high school… (and girls already in high school, of course).

The Self-Defence Bootcamp will focus on these key areas:

  • How to Stay Safe on Public Transport
  • How to Deal with Unwanted Approaches
  • How to Effectively deal with bullies in real life and online
  • Immediate, practical physical and mental self-defence skills

In a world where girls are increasingly objectified and sexualized younger and younger, it teaches girls strong boundaries and how to say NO to things they don’t want to do.

Philotimo Freestyle Jujitsu founder Sensi Rose told ITC it provides a safe space for girls to learn jujitsu while also learning social skills, anti-bullying, good manners, organisation, and communication skills in a fun and healthy environment that promotes healthy boundaries and positive life skills.

Learning self-defence is empowering and changes a women’s beliefs about what they are capable of and what they are entitled to. Most importantly, it gives a sense of mastery over their own bodies, which creates lasting change in a girl’s self-worth and how they feel about themselves.

Self-Defence Workshop – How to Book

Book for three full days of self-defence essentials with top black belt instructors $250

DATE – 9am – 3pm Monday 15 to Wednesday 17 January 2024

Learning with Confidence

Congratulations to all our students finishing up with LWC this year. We look forward to hearing about results and especially plans for the future.
We will be picking up with our other students, especially the seniors, in January. In year 12 especially, it’s important to get ahead of the game, be familiar with texts and why you are reading them. Active reading can save a lot of time later in the year. We can show you how to pick out the relevant quotes on first reading, according to rubric requirements.
We are enrolling new students now with a free initial assessment with Margaret. Let’s meet up and talk about the year ahead. No contracts and no upfront fees too.
Best wishes for the Christmas season.
