Self-confidence through self-defence
Pontefract Library, Shoemarket, Pontefract, WF8 1BD
Face to Face Recovery College Courses (18+)
This session, lead by Blossom CIC, provides a unique opportunity to build self-defence and confidence techniques. It is accessible to all, transcends age, gender, physical ability and is completely inclusive.
Blossom don’t do self-defence courses like everyone else. Instead, they help you on your self-esteem journey. They provide a safe, inclusive, non-bias space. It is not a martial arts class; they teach breakaway and disengagement techniques as a preventative measure to any form of violence and do not encourage combat.
Focusing on verbal assault and deterrents, the importance of body language, an understanding of fight or flight and the impact on our bodies, reporting techniques and some tech self-defence tools. By attending, you will:
- Improve confidence, moral, physical, and mental wellbeing.
- Improve community focus and social inclusion.
- Encourage physical activity.
- Provide confidence in open spaces.
- Promote resilience so we are better prepared for life’s challenges.
You will complete the day’s training feeling confident, resilient, and fully empowered!
