Peace Scouts self defence training

Founded by Muriel Cossgrove in 1908, the New Zealand Peace Scouts were a precursor to the Girl Guide movement in New Zealand.

Peace Scouts were encouraged to eschew corsets, which were believed to interfere with breathing and natural movement, to eat healthily, to play outdoor sports and to train in self defence techniques, as seen above.

This post includes another example of Peace Scout self defence training.
