Self Defence

Honryu Martial Arts is a unique self-defence and martial arts school, specialising in women’s self-defence. Our goal is to empower women of all ages, backgrounds and abilities to develop the self-confidence and self-awareness needed to defend themselves against a potential threat.


We offer a range of services, including workshops on your premises, regular 6 week courses, and private self-defence classes. Our team of highly experienced and certified instructors are committed to providing a safe and supportive environment for everyone.

The Pretty Deadly Program was designed by women and developed to be accessible to every age, body type, and fitness level. Certified trainers have passed a rigorous certification course that includes trauma support, DV awareness and cognitive behavioral theory, in addition to martial arts.  


We will use everyday movements that you already know and reapply them to self defense situations. You will also be able to recognize where you are already practicing self defense in your day to day life.

Pretty Deadly Self Defense is a 6 week series for anyone interested in connecting to their body in a new way, finding tools to help with anxiety, stress and fear, and ready to discover the joy of movement while developing practical life skills that build self confidence and self-trust, so you can adapt to anything, and be ready for everything!
