Y13 Learn Self-Defence Tactics

As part of their enrichment, Y13 have been learning from ex-policeman about how to defend themselves...

 Sixth formers had the chance to experience self-defence in all its glory! We put forward our aggressive fronts and learnt how to defend ourselves tactically if we were ever confronted by an intimidating stranger. From chain punches to powerful kneecap kicking from the floor, we all now feel fully equipped to deal with a dangerous encounter on the street. Our instructors have been incredibly helpful in teaching us all of these skills, constantly improving our stance and making us work harder and fiercer if we’re not delivering as expected. Perseverance, hard work and determination are only some of the many qualities we have developed. Self-defence has no ideal participant; you don’t have to be incredibly fit and healthy, you just have to be very motivated to step out of your comfort zone and join a dedicated team, and, most importantly not afraid to have great fun!
