Martial Arts” is an accelerator for leadership development. It’s a powerful opportunity for young people to build their self-esteem, courage and self-efficacy. The ripple effect of that experience continues off the Dojo and throughout a young person life.
We encourage women to attend courses and provide women’s self-defence course known as “safety 4u”.
We also provide a youth leadership programme, we believe that mentoring is a valuable tool to promote and encourage the development of young women as leaders in their sports organisations and communities. Often times, Boys & girls have little access to role models or mentors who they can speak to candidly about their lives, goals and future aspirations. Structured mentoring programmes give young women and girls opportunities to build a network that can help guide them in short and long-term goals, develop their leadership capacities and give them the confidence to achieve what they want to achieve on and off the field.
In the past, we have successfully delivered for 8-19 years on the following activities
- Women’s safety 4U programme
