Self-defence 6-week course 

Starting 20th March

When: Wednesday 12.30 – 1.30pm

Where: Hot House

Build your confidence with self-defence. We will learn how to defend against a variety of wrist and throat grabs, body grabs and groundwork.

In this workshop we will cover:




We will be moving around and in close contact with each other.

Men, please be mindful and respectful that some women may want to partner only with women.

We will also cover real life scenarios which may be upsetting or triggering for some people who have lived experience so please be conscientious.
