My sister and I run 6 week courses purely for women.
Aim: The courses are aimed at girls, teenagers and adult women. The classes will involve discussion on emotional boundaries, personal awareness and space and the fight, flight or freeze scenarios. We will work through drills on how to keep people out of your personal space i.e "Leave me alone" (the power of the voice). And as the course advances we will move on to striking moves that come naturally to women, acting on instinct, moving on to ground work, defending yourself from your knees or if you are in the lying position. We hope to give students enough on-course practice to help them deal with situations differently and with more confidence should they occur.
This is a self-defence class not a fitness class - women of all fitness levels are welcome.
Instructors: The course will be run by Sarah O’Donnell and Rachel Lambinon. Both of us are experienced martial artists (you’re in safe hands!). Sarah is a 2nd degree black belt in kickboxing, a qualified personal trainer and fitness instructor. Rachel is assistant instructor at Alberton Chinese Kickboxing and has many years of experience with Capoeira and kickboxing and is a qualified swimming teacher. Both instructors have up to date CPR and First Aid training.
Level: This is a beginner course and all encompassing. Whether you're a stay-at-home mum or work in a busy office environment, suffer from low self-esteem or have been assaulted in the past, a schoolgirl who has suffered bullying or those that walk/ride to and from school, this course is suitable for all.
Exposure: We will discuss the nature of our country, and others, with different kinds of crime and reasoning. We will discuss real threats and real consequences to create awareness. Different locations an attack can happen. Different kinds of attacks. What one could use as a weapon; usual household objects.
Venue: Convenient to the specific group.
Duration: The courses run for 6 weeks; attendance for one hour per week. Time of day is to be unanimously decided by the confirmed attendees or the group authority. This will differ depending on availability of client. One day workshops available.
Clothing: Please dress in comfortable clothing (i.e. gym clothes and running/sports shoes.)
