Pay It Forward
In Australia, one woman dies each week from domestic violence. 50% of university students have been sexually harassed and one in three women have experienced physical violence. Our country is facing a violence epidemic and until our society has a cultural revolution, women need to learn skills to protect themselves and have confidence in their bodies.
Each month Jasiri runs our self-defence classes for women in partnership with Lake Nite Learning. When a student pays for a class, an allocation of their proceeds is paid forward to provide free self-defence training for women at the Beryl Women's Shelter and local survivors of abuse and harassment.
Our award winning model is the first pay it forward self-defence model in the world. We have already received international attention and support from UN Women and Buckingham Palace. With your help, Jasiri will empower women physically and psychologically through our specialised training led by champion Taekwondo and boxing athletes.
In a perfect world, women would not need to learn self-defence in order to feel confident in their own bodies and communities. But until there is a social and political revolution to eradicate all forms of violence and inequality, Jasiri Instructors will teach our students basic techniques and pressure points that are useful against an attack.
