"Why Womens Self Defence?"
Women are of course welcome in the adults martial arts class and we certainly recommend it. The Womens Self Defence system is a series of short courses to address the specific topic of Violence Against Women. The courses eliminate the 'art' side of the martial arts and focus on pure self-defence in a fun, safe and supportive learning environment. They also include information, support and preventative strategies. These are perfect for groups of friends or a corporate team.
