The Southam Self Defence Club opens at the Graham Adams Centre on Wednesday 17th February 2016 from 8.30-9.30pm and will run on Wednesday evenings.
This non-profit making club was created to help 12-18 year olds in our community protect themselves against physical attach. This age group is particularly vulnerable to bullying and violent rime, but with the right training and knowledge they can learn to defend themselves in a variety of situations. The program is also designed to enhance and improve fitness and self-confidence.
The methods and techniques that are taught are simple, practical and very effective. They are drawn from the striking and blocking martial art of Karate, grapping and throwing techniques of Jujitsu, Aikido and Judo and the ground defense techniques of Jujitsu.
With over 30 years experience, the instructor is well versed in martial arts, holding a black belt in Karate, Jujitsu, Judo, high grades in Aikido and other styles of Jujitsu in addition to army self defence training.
With the focus on self defence and helping vulnerable members of our community, it is not run as a traditional martial arts club. There is no special equipment and clothing to buy, no annual membership fees, no grading payments, and session fee are kept to a minimum to cover the costs of the room (currently £2 a session).
We would like young adults to learn useful and practical methods of defending themselves and to have fun while learning.
If you are interested in joining, please come along to the centre on a Wednesday evening at 8.30 and to participate please wear training / gym clothing.
