Self Defence

Self Defence

The Perth Martial Arts Academy is only minutes from the Perth CBD, on Wanneroo Road in Tuart Hill. We offer a wide variety of self-defence options for men, women, and children in a friendly, fun, and safe learning environment. Regardless of age, fitness level, size, or gender Perth Martial Arts Academy can teach you realistic self-defence specific to your needs. In addition, we can tailor self-defence training to groups (e.g. schools, businesses, universities, community groups, etc) or provide one-on-one personal training. Our training facilities are first class and we can easily cater to large groups or an individual.

The methods of self-defence training conducted at Perth Martial Arts Academy include the most readily applicable aspects of all martial arts principles – including those often seen in Japanese Jujitsu, BJJ, Brazilian Jiu-jitsu, Kenpo, Karate, Aiki-jujutsu, Aikido, Judo, MMA, Kick-Boxing, Boxing, Muay Thai, Tae-Kwon Do, grappling, Greco-Roman Wrestling, free-style wrestling, Mixed Martial Arts, stick arts, knife arts, military unarmed combat and weapons tactics. Participants are taught to deal with the most frequently encountered assaults first, according to international and Australian statistics. Other aspects of training include psychological approaches to self-defence, avoidance, de-escalation, deterrence, evasion, striking, grappling, clinching, escaping, defending against larger opponents, how to deal with multiple attackers, the appropriateness of response, how to use your surroundings effectively, armed and unarmed attackers, and fight-flight responses in self-defence. Countless Civilians, Military and Police Personnel have been trained in our methods. The Perth Martial Arts Academy self-defence system really works.

Our instructors have years of coaching experience, and a wealth of knowledge in the area. We also have extensive experience in health, fitness, human movement and medical conditions, so you can be assured that safety and correct training practices are foremost in our mind. All our coaches a required to have a minimum of a government accredited coaching qualification, working with children cleared, and hold a minimum senior first aid qualification. Having said this, most of our instructors have qualification far in excess of these requirements. Many of our instructors are professionals working in the emergency services, allied medical, health, and well-being sectors.

Perth Martial Arts Academy teaches adult self-defence classes on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday. If you’re unable to make the evening training times for self-defence classes there are also mid-day classes available. We can also cater for FIFO (fly-in-fly-out) workers and shift workers, who can only get to training occasionally. Kid’s self-defence classes, for those under 13 years old, are held on Tuesday afternoon and Saturday morning. Beginners of all ages are always welcome. Please contact us and we will be happy to explain our processes and we will do everything we can to meet your personal self-defence expectations.
