As of Sat 19 Aug, we still have places left on the last of our workshops for girls aged 11-15. If you'd like to book, please like our facebook page and message us there or text 077 3243 3243.

If you've already booked and want to know more, here's a rough timetable for the day:

12.45 - 1.00 pm  Arrival and registration/form filling

1.00-3.00 pm Session time:
Being ahead of the game
Escalation and how to deal with it
Hands-on techniques

3.00 - 3.20 pm BREAK
 3.20 - 5.00pm Session time
Hands-on practice for shoulder/arm/hair grabs
elbow strikes, knee strikes and kicks.

4.45-5.00pm PICK UP (we invite parents to arrive 15 minutes early to watch the final stages of the workshop where girls practice what they've learned)

What to wear and bring

  • Vest or t-shirt and tracksuit pants, shorts or leggings (no jeans please)
  • Clean trainers (some of the session will be in bare feet -no trainers on the mats)
  • No make-up or jewellery except small earrings that can't catch on clothing
  • Tie up or plait long hair
  • Bring a bottle of water and a snack for break time, we discourage fizzy drinks and sweets in the gym - fresh fruit, carrot sticks, nut and seed bars are all ideal snacks for the level of activity.

Hands-on workshop
Part of the workshop will involve hands-on techniques like escaping a hair grab or hand grab. For this reason, it's important that no jewellery is worn and that girls understand they will have to make contact with others. The girls will use their hands, feet, elbows and knees to strike focus pads and punch bags.
