We were asked to hold a number of ladies only classes to focus on gender specific attacks and since then we run them regularly. These classes are held at different locations throughout the year and are a pragmatic, realistic and give ladies the no frills information on exactly how to defend/ protect themselves. The majority of our instruction on this subject is on awareness and avoidance. This is because we are honest in our approach to this subject and know that it is difficult for a lady in most cases to overcome an often bigger, heavier and stronger man. The techniques we drill in these classes take into consideration the scared and adrenalized state that a lady will be in should such an attack take place. The techniques are therefore structured to be as simple as possible requiring minimal thought when under such pressure. Refresher courses are held at regular intervals.
