Self Defence

For the past six weeks we’ve been running a Self Defence course for teenagers at Hartlepool Sixth Form College.

All the students involved took to the program very positively and we were able to progress through very basic one-to-one scenarios through to dealing with groups.

We spent a lot of time working on overcoming the initial ‘flinch-freeze’ response when under pressure coupled with various body manipulations and strikes.

We also covered ‘Awareness & Avoidance’ and the ‘Fight or Flight’ response.

In all it was a good introductory course and will hopefully give the attendees more confidence.

We’ve given each of the attendees a free months trial at our community classes for January so we hope they take up the offer.
