We, at NZ Self-Defence Academy, believe that every kid should have the confidence and skills to stand up for themselves. This is why we invite parents and kids to our special Krav Maga workshop this September.

The Krav Maga self-defence system provides kids (and adults) with non-violent ways to deal with bullying and violence.

Working with their parents and fellows, kids will learn unique life-saving and problem-solving skills which they can apply throughout their life. It’s also a very fun way to make new friends, work in a team and improve overall fitness and health.

This is the first time that we are running a self-defence workshop for our awesome kids in New Zealand!

This workshop will be suitable for ages 6 to 9, and is meant as an introduction to our upcoming kids weekly classes. Details can be found on our website:
