What is ESD?

ESD (Empowerment Self Defence) is an evidence-based primary violence prevention system taught by a trained female instructor who teaches you to recognize the spectrum of violence and red flags and respond to it by using psychological awareness tools, verbal strategies, and physical techniques to prevent you from becoming a victim of violence. Scenarios cover everyday life situations, i.e. at work, school, with friends, family, and also worst-case such as sexual assault.

ESD Australia - Wisdom For Women ENCOURAGE girls and women to reconnect with their inner power to give you the tools and confidence to assert your right to feel safe and consequently changes the root conditions that allow violence against women to increase in our society by setting boundaries and becoming aware of what tools you have in an informative and non-threatening environment.
