About the Self Defense Classes:
Our self-defence classes for women (& non-binary people) will equip you with the skills needed for self-defence and boosting confidence, drawing on a range of martial arts and combat sports.
The classes are completely free to attend; organised by your Womens Part Time Officer, Enaya Nihal, and ran in collaboration with Warwick SU and Warwick sport.
We have up to 30 spaces avaliable for this session, on a first come first serve format at the time of the event.
For these sessions, we recommend you wear breathable clothing and appropriate footwear (such as trainers) & make sure to bring some bottled water!
What Classes are offered?
We will do 2 sessions per sport, as outlined below:
Week 4 - Mixed Martial Art Techniques & Self Defence introduction
Week 5 - Boxing led by Nick- Heart of England coach
Week 6 - Karate led by executive committe for the Karate club!
Week 7 - Taekwondo led by the Taekwondo Club
Week 8 - Mixed Martial Art Techniques & Self Defence Session 2
Week 9 - Boxing led by Nick- Heart of England coach
Our sessions will take place every MONDAY 5-6pm in Studio 2 (first floor of the Sports & Wellness Hub) from Weeks 4-9.
Breathable, comfortable clothing and shoes is best - think what you'd wear to go to the gym, do yoga, or go to play lazer tag!
- I've never done Judo/Karate/Taekwondo before?
These sessions are designed for you as a complete novice, to pick up some useful techniques in self defence in a safe and welcoming environment!
Our sessions will be operated on a first come, first serve basis - meaning anyone can come along! For safety reasons, we have a maximum capcity of 30 people, meaning if we go over that number, we'd then need to turn any additional arrivals away!
- Where is Studio 2? What is the Sports and Wellness Hub?
You can find the sports and wellness hub based on the main campus. It's a 7 minute from the Warwick University Bus Interchange, heading straight on the footpath near the Radcliffe Conference centre.
