Girls and Women from Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CALD) backgrounds often have special needs and requirements that can create barriers to accessing programs like self- defence

Martial arts are often male dominated or have mixed classes, which women of Islamic backgrounds cannot attend.

Philotimo as a women-only dojo provides a safe, culturally appropriate and encouraging environment for all women, and specifically women of CALD backgrounds who wish to train Jujitsu.

Our Greenacre dojo has been set up with the aid and support of the Islamic Women’s Welfare Association (IWWA) and girls train the full syllabus of Jujitsu in a welcoming and challenging environment with respect to the specific needs of our students.

The Greenacre dojo does not bow on or off the mats, or to the teacher, but rather pays mindful attention to the beginning and end of class, and a small offer of thanks or prayer each time the student steps off the mats, for the opportunity to learn.

Mothers who have enrolled daughters may train free with Philotimo as is our practice and the Hunters Hill Dojo runs a closed session on Monday nights specifically to accommodate women of Islamic and other Culturally diverse backgrounds.

It is the heart of Philotimo that we are a welcoming and inclusive environment for all women of all backgrounds.
