SAFE International Perth, Western Australia
SAFE International™ Perth
Julian McQuade is one of Perth's pundits on reality based self-defence. He believes that everyone should have the right to defend themselves and their loved ones in a legal and ethical manner. This is his driving reason for teaching others.
Having trained and fought using various martial arts systems and styles, ranging from traditional to competitive and combative methods, Julian has spent much of his martial arts career diligently searching for and refining fast and effective self-defence elements in everything he learns. For many years he has trained and worked as a senior member of staff and instructor for one of Western Australia's authorities in self-defence (Inner Circle Combatives Australia). Having worked alongside some of the world's leading experts in self-defence, combative martial arts and the psychology of violence, his desire to share his knowledge and contribute to the well-being and safety of the Western Australian community led him to SAFE International and the exceptionally versatile method Chris and Richard teach.
SAFE's diverse and simple method of delivery appealed to Julian's professional attitude towards self-defence instruction and has now seen him become a Certified SAFE partner where he employs his wealth of experience to provide SAFE training to the people of Western Australia.
Helen Bird is one of Perth's leading experts in reality-based self-defence and Combative methods. She holds various Instructor qualifications in Traditional, Hybrid and Combative martial arts and methods. She is a Senior Instructor for one of Perth's self-defence institutions (Inner Circle Combatives Australia) where she holds the position of Head of Curriculum Development. Her focus and expertise on realistic, legal and ethical solutions to real world violence make her a crucial element the organisation.
Helen's firsthand experience with violence has led her to dedicate her life to practising and teaching self-defence. This passion inspires her to share her skills with those most in need and is the reason she supports charities in Perth and beyond which help protect societies' most vulnerable members.
From experience; Helen knows the difference between what works and what does not when facing true violence. She spends most of her training time challenging herself to find better ways to use and teach her self-defence skills to anyone.
Her search for new and better methods of teaching and learning has seen her join the SAFE International team and represent Chris and Richard in Perth. She now teaches people of all walks of life and enjoys seeing them develop confidence and skill in their ability to defend themselves.
