Women's Self Defence

As a qualified female self defence teacher, I offer:

  • One-to-one sessions with a trauma-informed approach

  • Half-day introductory courses for groups

  • More intensive 6x 2hr courses (with option of a Level 2 BTEC qualification afterwards)

  • Tailored sessions to suit your group's particular requirements

These courses will teach you real-life, workable techniques that are easy to learn, apply and recall, against the most common types of attack such as wrist grabs, hair pulling, bear grabs and strangle holds.

The more intensive course also incorporates aspects of the law on reasonable force, how the body reacts under attack and techniques to combat this.

I take a trauma-informed approach with all my teaching, and understand that some students choose to learn self-defence after experiencing trauma themselves. As such, I take a relaxed, supportive approach where students feel comfortable and can take the learning at their own pace.

Please contact me to discuss your individual or group requirements.

Women's Martial Arts: Introduction to Taekwondo

This short course is an introduction to some of the most common techniques in taekwondo, taught by a qualified female instructor with over 15 years’ experience in taekwondo, self-defence and other martial arts.

There is no need to be fit or have any previous experience - this course is designed as a taekwondo taster for absolute beginners which will hopefully inspire you to find a local club to carry it on.

Each 60min lesson covers:

  • Low impact warm-up that can be taken at your own pace

  • Teaching of basic stances, hand, foot and blocking techniques in taekwondo and how they are used

  • Stretches to cool down

  • Q&A

What you will need:

  • Clothes that are comfy to move about in

  • Water


Who is it for?

  • Women of all ages and abilities

  • Women wanting to try out a martial art for the first time
