This ten-week course focuses on practical, no nonsense, self-defence techniques for women. It is not designed to teach all the complexities of a martial art where it can take years of practice before you can defend yourself properly. What it does teach is a method by which you can effectively defend yourself using a handful of proven techniques that will help you overcome most situations.You are not required to be particularly fit to take part in this programme, however if you are significantly overweight, elderly, have not exercised for a long period of time, or suffer from diabetes, heart, respiratory or back problems, it is advisable to consult your doctor before commencing any type of training.
A deposit of £20.00 is required, with the balance to be paid on the first day of the course.
N.B. Pre-booking is essential as a minimum of ten participants is necessary for the course to be viable.
PARTICIPANTS' REASONS FOR ENROLING

•“I’d just like to be able to feel safe and know that I can defend myself should something happen as you just don’t know what people are capable of sometimes.”

•"I enjoyed all of it and would not change anything except maybe making it a longer session."
•"I loved finding out all about the pressure points."
•"I have really enjoyed this class; I hope that I won't need to use it though."
•"Been a good laugh and I have learned a lot."
