We are a group of female students passionate about helping others in our situation feel safer, whilst also having a lot of fun! As a newly affiliated society you might not have heard of us so please come along and give it a try! No experience required, we are a friendly, diverse bunch of people welcoming all those who identify as female, regardless of age, race, sexuality, beliefs and ability. Our classes incorporate simple, realistic and effective self-defence techniques with an intense exercise regime that promotes strength, flexibility and cardiovascular fitness, along with talks from guests speakers on anything from reasonable force and the law, to support for domestic violence victims. We train every Monday during term time from 1830-2030 at St Winifred's School on Winn Road and Thursdays from 1500 - 1700 in the Clubs and Socs room in the Union, before heading to the Crown Inn or Stags after sessions for food and drinks. If you're a new member and would like to organise to meet and walk down with one of us from the university, please let us know!
