Ladies Self Defence
The study of the martial arts requires a lifetime.  Sometimes you just want to know the bare bones.  The simple things that will get you out of trouble with someone who is bigger or stronger and aggressive.  Sometimes you don't want to pursue the martial arts as a hobby or a lifestyle.  Sometimes you just want a little bit of help and an injection of confidence to get by in today's world.
These classes are not Karate classes.  You don't need any special uniform.  You don't need any special equipment.  You don't need to be fit or flexible.  You don't need any martial arts experience.
What is covered in the class?
What to do when a guy grabs you.
What to do when he tries to hit you.
What to do when your hair has been grabbed or you have his hands around your neck.
What to do when you are on your back.
What NOT to do when you have to free yourself from someone bigger.
There is no magic wand.  There will be a struggle.  And You can do it.
We can prove it.
