Training Workshops



Street Smart Kids

We all want our children to be safe, and grow up to be happy, healthy, independent and confident.  School educates your children on reading and writing, you instil family values at home, but when do they learn to be Streetsmart?  BTC’s Streetsmart Kids workshops are a fun and easy way for your children to learn the valuable skills that will keep them safe as they navigate life, whether that be waiting for a pickup after school, going to bathrooms in shopping centres, getting lost, being home alone, hanging out with friends, and much more.

BTC Streetsmart Kids Workshops are primarily about building confidence and protective behaviours, in other words, things your children can do every day, without living in fear, to help avoid having a problem in the first place.  Whilst they will learn some simple and effective self-defence skills, this is not the focus, however BTC does of course offer ongoing children’s self-defence and martial arts classes throughout the year.

BTC’s Streetsmart Kids Workshops are taught regularly throughout the year and teach children:

  • How to recognise potential threats
  • Street safe strategies
  • Home safe strategies
  • School safe strategies
  • Prevention & awareness
  • The “street smart” ABC’s
  • Simple & effective self-defence techniques

Part of developing Streetsmart Kids, is to also make sure that we’re not giving the children mixed messages, and that you as a parent are reinforcing safe behaviours with them.  As part of our workshops:

  • The 16 common lures used by predators
  • Recognising the signs of distress
  • How to nurture a “street smart” attitude
  • Prevention & awareness
  • Common mistakes kids make which put them at risk
  • Techniques to practice with your kids

BTC’s Streetsmart Kids Workshops are generally offered at our full time martial arts studio which are purpose built matted and air conditioned facilities, however are available to deliver workshops offsite.

Bully Defence

One in every four children in Australian schools are affected by bullying according to the Federal Government.  Many believe that every child will be affected by bullying at some point during their schooling.  Bullying can be a very unfortunate and unnecessary part of school life, and one which many parents feel powerless or ineffective in resolving.  The good news is there is something you can do to help.

BTC has been conducting Bully Defence Workshops and one on one training with children to great effect for a number of years.  To be clear, the main change we’re looking for is not to teach children to be aggressive or fighters, but to change them on the inside, so that they react differently on the outside, and therefore resolve the problem before it starts.

BTC’s Bully Defence Workshops are taught regularly throughout the year and teach children:

  • How bullies pick their victim
  • How to handle bullies
  • How to build self-esteem and confidence
  • Situational awareness
  • Protective behaviours
  • How to protect themselves against bullies, physically and mentally
  • Fun, easy & non aggressive self-defence

The Bully Defence Workshops cater for children from four years old through to teenagers, and are designed to work in tandem with school programs to ensure children aren’t being given mixed messages.

In addition to workshops, BTC also offers individual sessions in Bully Defence for children. Many parents who have tried other things which didn’t get real change and real results for their children have found these to be highly effective.  We teach the children strategies based on their individual circumstance, then follow up each week to make any adjustments as necessary to get a positive change for the child.
