Last term 17 of our bravest VCE students completed a nine week course on self defense basics provided by Mr Nik Kourtessis from Fighting Spirit Goju Karate.

The ladies learned not only how to de-escalate potentially dangerous situations but also techniques to use in more serious situations, such as how to create space to avoid being threatened, how to break out of holds, the best ways to drag public attention to any situations, and how to create opportunities to escape safely.

Nik, who works at dozens of schools throughout the metro area, shared that he considered the group to be one of the best and most enthusiastic he’d had the pleasure of teaching.
