a SELF defence course is being offered to encourage women who are victims of domestic violence.
The free course run by React UK Training in Normanton will demonstrate self defence techniques to use when reacting to physical and verbal abuse.
Lead Trainer and Company Director Mark Reather said: “So many women have and continue to face domestic violence, but many do not come to courses like this.
“But we can help show that while you cannot control someone else actions you can control your reaction.”
Through the class students will learn about the laws surrounding self-defence to understand what is a proportional response .
Understanding body language and how to defuse verbal aggression will also be taught.
Instructions will also be given on how to remove yourself from wrist holds, clothing grabs and other restraints
More than 65 people have signed up to the course and 30 remain on its waiting list.
React UK are planning to run further free courses following the interest shown in the course. To find out more visit Reactuktraining.co.uk
