The Girls’ Self Defence Project Aotearoa New Zealand provides:
- A completely free eight hour self defence course for Year 7–8 girls

Schools that have Project courses include
- State schools
- Integrated schools
- Kura kaupapa and bilingual units
- Urban schools
- Rural schools
We have some availability of teachers competent in Te Reo.
All Project courses are taught by accredited women instructors from the Women’s Self Defence Network — Wāhine Toa.
The project currently reaches approximately 5,000 girls per year.
