A local training academy is offering female residents the chance to participate in their eight-week self-defence courses for free. The course aims to give the participants more independence and learn new techniques.
Starting Saturday, 9 February the course held over two time slots is open to women and girls aged 13 years and older who are looking to learn skills to protect themselves and build confidence.
This is the second occasion Sev Necati Training has offered the courses and based on the feedback received, places will be booked quickly.
Read below feedback from participants of last year’s course:
“I’ve become a lot more confident in putting the skills into action. I’ve become more aware of my surroundings. Clearly taught, well explained and demonstrated. Challenging at first though with practice became easier. Overall, very useful in teaching me new things and making a lot more confident in myself,” Ena said.
“I feel very empowered and strong, really inspired and ready. You will grow, gain independence, grow in strength and be able to help others. I really appreciated the opportunity. I feel very lucky and responsible to help others,” Bethany-Anne said.
“I’ve never done a course like this before and wanted to know what it was about. It was brilliant, very fun yet professional. Do it! Every girl and woman should do it,” Virginia said.
Sev Necati, director, said: “We’re delighted to be running another series of free female self-defence and personal safety courses in Ealing. This is a great opportunity for women and girls who want to increase their independence and confidence to take advantage of this offer. The course will provide practical techniques, regardless of their background, age or ability in self-defence and vital knowledge on street safety. At the end of the course participants will feel empowered, more confident and improvement in self-worth and overall fitness levels.”
There are two courses both run on each Saturday from 9 February to 30 March. First class will be held from 11:15am to 1:15pm and the second from 1:30nopm to 3:30pm.
Held at Reynolds Sport Centre, Acton High School, Gunnersbury Lane, W3 8EY. A £10.50 deposit is required to secure a place, which will be returned at the end of the course.
