What our clients say

“What a fantastic program!  Craig and Bronnie willingly came to our school to teach an all-boy Year 9 PE class some self-defence techniques and what each of them got was so much more.

To see their confidence grow as well as their ability and fitness was excellent, but to see their self-esteem improve as well, was just an awesome added bonus. The instructors worked closely with each student to develop their skills and impart them with a strong moral code that goes with such powerful knowledge.

Craig and Bronnie were greatly motivated and enthusiastic and tailored the program to the group to maximise motivation and participation.  I highly recommend Synergy Self Defence to anyone or group that may be contemplating the benefits of Self Defence.”

Steven Deans
PE Teacher - Calwell High School

"During our Human Movement unit within the Year 9 Curriculum, Synergy Self Defence ran sessions with our students. The Synergy Self Defence team were fantastic! Their extensive knowledge and energy each session had our students constantly asking when the next session was.  All of our students thoroughly enjoyed the course and developed greater confidence as a result. The highlight for the students was, of course, breaking of the boards!

I strongly encourage people to take this fantastic opportunity to work with excellent professionals and enjoy learning new skills."

Romina Momone
St Mary MacKillop College, Canberra

"Marist Canberra had the pleasure of having Bronnie and Craig from Synergy Self Defence come to present a hands on session with our Year 9 students. They were very professional in their approach and provided the boys with an excellent set of defensive drills which they thoroughly enjoyed. They were clear in their instructions and had an impressive manner that built a trust between student and instructor.

We will certainly be using the team from Synergy again in the future."

Tony Sullivan
Year 9 Coordinator, Marist College


I was so impressed with myself when I broke the wooden board with my bare hands!

A big Thank you to the team at Synergy. The Vikings group took some of our staff to an Eyes Wide Open seminar and had an awesome time.

What was taught is something we can take into our everyday lives and they showed us not only how to defend yourself but how to avoid getting yourself into unsafe situations. The staff now report they are walking around in a yellow state and are aware of what is going on in their surroundings. They ensured it was relevant to both our working Club life and our personal life.

We will most certainly be back to allow more of our staff to feel more confident and safe.

These guys really know their stuff and their passion for teaching others is very clear. Would recommend this to people of all ages and physical abilities.
