Bujutsu Launches Domestic Violence Program
A recent Australian Institute of Criminology survey of 15,000 Australian women showed almost 5% of all women, and close to 10% of women living with a partner, have endured physical or sexual violence during 2020.
Whilst, over 22% of women cohabiting with their intimate partner reported experiencing emotionally abusive, harassing and controlling behaviours.
Domestic Violence within Australia is a significant issue for our society.
Bujutsu is launching a Domestic Violence program that will see 40 women over the next 12 months provided with free training that will help to improve the lives of these women. The program is available to victims of domestic violence that live within the Macarthur Region.
We will be working with a partner agency and given the sensitivity surrounding domestic violence, I won’t go into any of the finer details here.
The program will be led by Sensei Mark Szalajko who has been training martial arts since 1987 and was one of Australia’s most senior police officers having held the rank of Detective Superintendent.
This program will not only focus upon self defence strategies and techniques but also upon legislation and work to work with the criminal justice system and importantly the NSW Police Force.
If you feel that you would benefit from this program please do not hesitate to contact us and seek more information.
Bujutsu also runs a very successful Ladies Only Kick Boxing and Self Defence program. These classes run every Tuesday and Thursday at 7pm.
