Mark Grobbelaar has a very unique philosophy to personal protection, his talks and programs are engaging ,fun and many have said are "life changing".
He began karate at the age of nine and holds a 6th Dan, as well as provincial and national colours, he has over 45 years experience in his field and is founder of a revolutionary concept to give women their power back.
“The course of my life changed after a friend of mine, was abducted outside her home about 25 years ago, raped, her throat slit , disemboweled and left for dead .
Alison and I met in London before the attack and reconnected, where we spoke about her ordeal.
I realised that she had made some bad choices because she just didn’t know any better, she didn’t know all the options and didn’t know “The rules” , I wrote a thesis for my 5th Dan grading on “Self-defence for Women”.
Alison contacted me after reading my thesis and said that if she had done what was suggested, she would never have gone through her ordeal.”
Thus Women INpowered ( WIP) was born. WIP is not “self-defence” as understood by most people, which is totally useless if you are not prepared to invest the many hours of training that is required.
