Louder Than Words Self - Protection
Louder Than Words was created by a young Melbourne law student, Matilda Simpson. Matilda began the business out of what she felt was a necessity to do something, to make herself and every other Melbourne woman feel safer in the community.
Matilda is passionate about achieving this through empowered self defence training, which academic studies have found to be, so far, the most effective and relatively simple way to reduce rates of female violence.
The workshops themselves are distinct from most existing self defence training courses as they are all female run, and focus on increasing women’s sense of safety in the world rather than decreasing it. The physical and non-physical strategies taught in the workshop are easy-to-learn and easy to remember.
Matilda and the rest of the team make sure the workshops are a fun, inclusive and supportive environment where women are made to feel comfortable and given regular opportunities to take a break from the content. Every workshop finishes with a gentle cool down and stretch, where discussion and feedback is welcome and encouraged, and every participant is invited to stay in touch with the ‘Louder Than Words’ network and become part of this supportive female community.
