Arise Curriculum

We have four course offerings, each containing up to six lessons, designed as part of a complete package OR as standalone workshops, with pick-and-mix options available depending on your needs.

Each lesson is adaptable for elementary or secondary aged students, co-ed or girls-only and incorporates both educational and physical components.

We combine non-combative self defense techniques and exercise, with activities (journalling, art + drama) that tackle important topics and spark meaningful discussions.
