Having earlier this year offered a free self-defence and safety course for women and girls to Ealing residents by Sev Necati Training, in partnership with the Metropolitan Police and Ealing Safer Neighbourhood teams, another session is to start from November.
The course takes place at Acton’s Reynolds Sports Centre in Gunnersbury Lane and runs every Saturday from 4 November 2023 to 16 December 2023 from 11.15am to 1.15pm.
Councillor Jasbir Anand, cabinet member for tackling inequality said: “This is an excellent opportunity for women and girls, mothers and daughters, friends and neighbours to boost their confidence through self-defence, learn new skills and feel safe when they are out.”
Sev Necati, who will be teaching the self-defence course 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 through self-defence and to take advantage of this offer.”
Ms Necati added: “The course will provide practical techniques, regardless of their background, age or ability which will include self-defence training and vital knowledge on street safety. At the end of the course participants will feel empowered, more confident and improve in self-worth.”
One resident who took part last year said: “I’ve never done a course like this before and wanted to know what it was about. It was brilliant, very fun yet professional. Every girl and woman should do it.”
To sign up and secure a place, an £11 deposit is required which will be returned at the end of the course. There are limited spaces.
