Self-Defense Instructor
Hi! I’m Ann du Plessis, a survivor of sexual, emotional & financial abuse and just when I thought all my troubles with men were over, they kept reoccurring in the form of harassment in the workplace and even in my karate club.
I know firsthand the struggles that women have to endure on a daily basis which is why I launched my self-defense academy for women in 2017.
Over the years I’ve been on countless self-defense courses but found them borderline dangerous as the typical class teaches you fancy techniques that work in picture-perfect situations… but they’ll never work in a real-life or death situation unless you practice them regularly with your instructor.
This is why FLAG Academy focuses on helping busy women, just like you, eliminate their risk of being a vulnerable victim but instead women who are confident, fearless and powerful, whether they are walking down the street at night or home alone with their children.
The techniques that I teach are natural, easy to remember and highly effective for all women, no matter your size or strength.
You do have choices. You can choose not to end up becoming a victim.
And if you find yourself in a situation where you do have to defend yourself, there ARE steps you can take to get out of it.
I’ll show you
– Ann
