  • You care about your emotional & physical safety

  • You are interested in personal growth

  • You do not want to leave your comfort zone

  • You are massively restricted due to injuries

My name is Mia.

Founder of Beyond Defence

Over the recent years I helped many women form all walks of life to re-write their stories, and fill them with more inner and outer strength, clarity and confidence.

They feel safer in their skin, in their lives and unfold their true potential and inner power day by day. Some women only spend one session with me and have more effective tools by hand coming along with a profound change than women who trained Martial Arts for decades. True story.

  • Trained and certified Instructor of Krav Maga and Pure Self Defense

  • Holistic Coach with emphasis on Emotional Intelligence and Personal Development

  • Equal Rights & Quality WarriorZ

My goals are to support you from where you are now, and to bring you with a step-by-step-approach to the solid level of the woman you will to be...

...and to make this world a safer & better place for women, for these there are and for those to come.

What to expect on Level 1?

Simple and highly effective Self Protection-Tools

On this weekend you will not only learn the basics of physical self defense but also achieve the tool every woman should have in her toolbox. Beyond Defense starts with the worst-case scenario tool, not the other way around!

What does it mean to be you?

Self defense aka self love gives you the opportunity to encounter yourself in a new way and gain an intensive insight into your inner fire!

Your path through the training will be unique and we will support you in exactly that way.

Among Women

The energy that arises when women are save and free among themselves is incomparable and inspiring.

We will intensify this energy and ensure that it carries us beyond the camp.

Being a woman is wonderful!

Sneak from the Agenda

  • 6.30am Yin Training
  • 7.30 am Self Defense
  • 9.30 am Breakfast

  • 11.00am Self Defense

Level 1 

  • 1.00pm Lunch & Time for You

  • 3.00pm Self Defense

  • 5.30pm Yin Training

  • 8.00pm Evening Ritual

Our days begin with meditation and/or Qi Gong/Tai Chi, followed by self defense exercises so that we move from stillness to movement to Yang energy sequences.

After breakfast and until early afternoon there are training and rest intervals. So that you have time to spend with yourself, write, go for a walk, socialize or relax.

Throughout camp we will not only explore our bodies and self, but also utilize various techniques and skills to find greater space and familiarity in integrating our balance of Yang and Yin. This includes mind-body exercises that focus on self defense while providing space for emotional exploration.

Evening practices will highlight the energy for receptivity and reflection, moving from Yang to Yin and completing the cycle of the day. We will then create a suitable environment for an evening meeting and gather for women's rituals in nature.

Impressions from the Desert Camp 2023

Save My Spot



What if I do not have any experience with self defense?

No previous knowledge is necessary. Suitable for beginners and also those experienced in martial arts. Every woman. Every age.

  • How do I know there are still spaces for the camp date I want?

    We have three dates for 2024:

    26-28 April 2024

    26-28 July 2024

    12-22 September 2024 (Level 2, 7 + 3 days) TBC

    Your booking will automatically secure you a place. You then decide which date you want to register for.

    Please note that this is on a come-first-serve, first-served basis. If a camp date is fully booked, it will be announced here on the website just behind the date, so don't worry.

    What will I take away from the camp?

    For us, the internal process is just as important as the external one. In addition to effective and easy-to-use self defense tools, most women experience going home full of strength, self confidence and a vibrant

    sense of togetherness.

    What do I need to bring or prepare?

    After you booked you will receive a detailed list of things to bring with you. However, to get an idea: the camp takes place outside and we spend the night in tents which are provided. So, yes, a few things are needed to be brought along.

    How do I know this works?

    I know it can be difficult to decide whether the effort of searching for something unknown is worth it.

    How can you be sure that this is right for you without knowing exactly what to expect and what you will get out of it?

    To predict the unknown, we typically look at comparable parameters such as time, money and effort. What other participants agreed they took away from the camps was, that it was an incredibly enriching experience.

    And the essence of the experience is that it wants to be experienced, is often only partially communicable and cannot really be measured with money.

    That's why I give you my word, this camp will be a unique, lasting and profound experience. The question for me (or you) is:

    How determined are you to rewrite your story?

    Location, schedule and price for the weekend?

    The camp is located in the Lüneburg Heath, directly in the Lüneburg - Braunschweig - Hanover triangle. From there it's just under 50 minutes by car. There are train stations too, don't worry. Nothing more will be revealed yet :)

    The camp begins on Friday afternoon with arrival between 12-1 p.m. and ends on Sunday in the afternoon.

    The WoodCamp is a pioneer camp, brand new. Based on the ByD Desert Camps from Mexico (therefore all the Desert Images).

    For those who trust the process in advance and register bindingly, there will be one or two gifts as a wonderful cycle of give and take.

    In addition, our value is to support every woman who wants to learn self defense. If things are really tight financially, you can apply for a solidarity ticket (book an info call therefore).
