Teenagers – High School Girls Only

- Level 2 – “Seniors” 15 – 18 years
The “Arktoi” or “Little Bears” were girls in Ancient Greece who looked after the temple of Artemis. They learned wrestling & sparring as part of their training in the temple. Our all-girls martial arts program provides a safe space for girls to learn self defence in a positive & collegiate environment.
Teenage classes specialize with a particular focus on young women. Girls 11 – 17 years are at greatest risk of sexual assault and this age group also coincides with the greatest drop in participation in both martial arts and group sport. Girls have particular requirements when learning the more adult aspects of martial arts and we provide a safe space for them to “be themselves” while developing confidence and skill.
This is a full martial arts program that also drills communication with parents and adults, a strong anti-drug message as well as dealing with more mature and difficult aspects of bullying at high school, including cyber bullying.
All aspects of personal safety is covered. Girls will benefit from good decision making, sizing up risk, making good choices. These students are introduced to basic MMA (Mixed martial arts) and also learn in-depth weaponry skills including knife, cane, jo and bo.
Promising students are invited to join our Tournament program which feeds into our all-girls competition.
