A local training academy is offering female residents the chance to participate in their eight-week self-defence & personal safety course for free. The course aims to give the participants more independence and learn new techniques.

Starting Saturday, 1 October, the course is being held at the Reynolds Centre on Gunnersbury Lane from 11.30am to 1.30pm and is open to women and girls aged 13 years and older. The course runs until Saturday 19 November.

This is the ninth occasion on which Sev Necati Training has offered the courses and it says that based on the feedback received, places will be booked quickly.

Reynolds Sports Centre has hosted several courses including self-defence training for women and girls 13 years old upwards. These funded classes in conjunction with the Met Police and MOPAC to name but a few are run by Sev Necati Training.

Sev Necati, director, said, “We’re delighted to be running another free course in Ealing. This is a great opportunity for women and girls who want to increase their independence and confidence to take advantage of this offer. The course will provide practical techniques, regardless of their background, age or ability which will include one week in self-defence training and vital knowledge on street safety. At the end of the course participants will feel empowered, more confident and improvement in self-worth.”

A £11.00 deposit is required to secure a place, which will be returned at the end of the course (terms & conditions apply).
