In Depth Course

Developed by professional MMA fighters, our four part course teaches women the most effective defenses to the most common attacks from standing, to being grabbed, to when on the ground. 

Taught by Female Fighters

We hire local female martial artists to teach our course to their communities. Our instructors lead with energy, positivity, and  years of competitive experience.


We partner with gyms all across Ontario to make self defense available to as many women as possible.

What Women Are Saying

"Did a self defence workshop today. It was practical and easy to follow. Gemma is amazingly patient and funny too. She has a way of putting the participants at ease. The overall atmosphere is positive, respectful and motivating."

— Alexandra S.

"It was a lot of fun and very informative. Gemma is a sweetheart, very patient and caring with her students. Her priority is to make sure girls and women leave with confidence in themselves and their ability to be better prepared to defend themselves. SYG is definitely the way to go for self defense training!"

— Stephanie T.

"So much fun! The self defense workshop surpassed all expectations. The moves were simple, useful, easy to remember and Gemma is so genuine, knowledgeable, strong, nice, cool, you name it. What an awesome business!"

— Ayesha T.

"Really enjoyed the workshop! Postures were comfortable for beginners and class was accessible to all levels of fitness. The environment was strictly female and very welcoming. I highly recommend trying SYG out if you are considering a self defense class."

— Khondker F.
