Free Women Only Self-Defence Workshop

The next self-defence workshop for women is on Saturday 18th May 2019, 11am to 12 noon. It's open to ladies and girls aged 12 years old plus.

We'll discuss your concerns about the current local and national crime wave and offer advice and training on the following topics:

Easy to remember tips to avoid conflict and not become a target.
De-escalation techniques to calm an aggressive person.
Practical self-defence blocks and strikes.
Effective pressure points and restraining techniques.
What to do if someone pulls out a knife. You'll see just how dangerous knives really are and be taught the best way to survive a knife attack.
We'll also cover how important 'Intent' and 'The Law & Reasonable Force' is for self-protection.

Stephen will be on hand to answer your concerns, from walking home late at night to acid, moped and terrorist attacks.

No karate suits required. As usual, it's free.

Staples Road School Sports Week

Sports Week launches on Monday 24th June 2019. It's an incredible opportunity for the pupils to try many different activities.

During this week, we run karate training sessions for virtually the whole school. Around 450 pupils get the chance to try their hand (and foot) at karate.

It's our 5th successive year being involved with Sports Week

I’m delighted by the positive feedback from the school, many pupils saying that it was their favourite activity for that week.
