Dads and Daughters Event - Stronger than you think

Chedid Property and the KYUP! Project invite you and your daughter/s to a memorable and practical free community event with black-belt martial artist and founder of the KYUP! Project, Mel Thomas, that will leave you both believing in each other to take strong hearted action when confronted with unsafe behaviour or situations.

Hosted by Mark Beretta, Channel 7 Sunrise, the event will feature a fun, safe, hands-on workshop designed specifically for dads, male guardians and carers to experience with 13-19 year old girls they love. A survivor of domestic violence, the extraordinary Mel Thomas will share personal safety tips and simple self defence techniques any girl can use, no matter her size or skill level. Using relatable examples of real-life scenarios such as public transport, public places and parties – girls learn to:

  • replace fear with confidence
  • trust their instincts and make smart choices
  • use the power of their voice to defuse dangerous situations
  • get away when a situation doesn’t feel right
  • fight back when needed
  • break the cycle of violence
Following the workshop dads and daughters will get to enjoy light refreshments and capture a special memory to take away in the photo booth kindly sponsored by The Party Starters.
This is an exclusive RSVP only event with limited spaces. Register today!
