Stand up for yourself when conflict strikes
What price do you put on your personal safety, or on being able to defend a family member should you suddenly be faced with an aggressive situation? For just $25 per person, there's a great class being offered by the West Australian Institute of Martial Arts (WAIMA) where you'll learn the basics you need to feel better equipped should you find yourself faced in a conflict based situation.

WAIMA reflect that 'more than 40% of people will be attacked in a violent crime. From home invasions to road rage, aggression is at an all time high'. With these sadly high odds, perhaps it's high time to consider how to protect your safety.

Who Is This For?
This course is for everyone, even those with no prior experience of self defence. The fact remains that anyone could be faced with a situation of conflict, such as a burglary, road rage or being personally accosted in the street. You only have to switch the news on to see that these events are a regrettably regular part of every day life now. By attending a self defence course, you help to prepare yourself against these situations; to effectively deal with the conflicts that life can throw your way. Courses are conducted by WAIMA's internationally certified instructors, who will help you every step of the way so that you leave confident in your self protection knowledge and practice.
