Strike consultants understand the dangers of violence existing within our community. We have applied our extensive policing and military experience to provide a program giving you a set of practical skills to use when confronted with aggressive behaviour and conflict. This is not a course of extensive physical training but usable, realistic methods that are taught in a few short hours to allow you to manage these situations effectively. This is not a martial arts program with difficult fighting systems. It is simple and manageable with straightforward application to deter or defend against personal violence within the confines of the law. These methods can be adapted to any situation, in the community, in the home, or at school. No matter your age or fitness level this program can help you.

Loved the women’s self defence course taught by Gaven. Lots of practical advice given in a 3 hour session. Highly recommended!

Cinmy – 20/11/2018


Strike’s “Women’s Self Defence” course is empowering and great fun. Gaven Wicks, who gives the course, is an absolute GEM. He pours energy into our 3 hours, [and it feels like only 5 minutes!] .The practical things we can do to cope with an assault are simple and easy to remember [I hope!].However, the bits I loved the most are the riveting stories Gaven told us about his life in “the underbelly”.These gave us a critical insight into the way criminals think, so we can think like one to and be one step ahead. I highly recommend this course. Strike has a genuine concern for our well being.

I participated in the women’s self defence class and it was one of the best things I have ever done! Gaven was amazing and very informative, I would highly recommend this class to any woman. I definitely have taken a lot on board from this class, thanks Gaven!

Sarah – 27/08/2018


Thank you to Strike Training & Consulting for providing an informative and interactive staff training session tailored to suit the needs of our organisation. Gaven shared his wealth of knowledge & experience in a friendly and professional manner. We look forward to having Strike come again.

My 15yo daughter Jasmin & I had been looking for a self defence class that we could do together. We both loved the fun class & have come away with some great tips & practical ways to keep ourselves safe if needed. Thank you for the enjoyable evening classes. Now to practice on my husband & two sons. �



Upon referral and recommendation from another organisation, Good Samaritan Industries approached Strike Training & Consulting to customise a ‘Store Security, Defence and Conflict Management’ program for our organisation.

Strike Training & Consulting worked closely with us to develop a bespoke training product that was highly contextualised to our environment and staff. This culminated in delivery of the training to 25+ store managers over a half day period.

The program was a complete success and all participants left the course with confidence in how to handle conflict in the work place in a professional manner in line with their rights as an employee.

The trainer we had for the day was Mr. Gaven Wicks who was very professional, and didn’t subject us to ‘death by power point’. The session was very interactive and inclusive of all participants in a safe and fun training environment.

I have subsequently recommended Strike Training & Consulting to other retailers as a result of our experience and would continue to do so for people who need professional development in conflict management or for any business that has a strong customer relation base.

Channel Nine News interview


On Saturday 17th March 2018 the woman in this interview was attacked for her phone in East Perth. She attempted to fight off the attacker and was stabbed 5 times. Our Managing Director Gaven WICKS was interviewed about the incident.


Is Perth a dangerous place? No, it isn’t in comparison to other cities and certainly not on the back of one single incident. But there is a growing concern around increasing violent attacks and the brazen attitude of these criminals who have little regard for the law. There has been an increase in these types of attacks in Perth and it is advised people become more aware of their environment and who moves within it. They need to be more vigilant about their surroundings, what to look out for and how to deal with their own safety.


A simple reliance on police to respond or security to assist means the event has already occurred and most likely the damage has been done. All members of the community need to educate themselves in the face of these types of attacks. It is not as complicated as attending countless martial arts or combat classes. A simple understanding of knowing what to do and how to manage your situation with simple self-defence moves is all that is required.
