Hansen, Athena

Athena has a background in traditional martial arts and has been an instructor in several different sports/physical activities including dance and gym (as a qualified personal trainer) prior to committing to her passion of helping people by teaching self defence.

Having been in several real life violent situations, including a serious multiple attacker situation (which resulted in hospitalization of some involved) and sexual and domestic assault, her understanding of the dynamics and impact of true violence is first hand, and she conveys these learning’s and teaches in a very easy to understand style.

Athena has taught men and women from all walks of life including police officers, security officers, corporates, women whom have been raped and assaulted, teenagers, and many others concerned with their safety and the safety of their family and loved ones.
