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. Find us on social media for updates: Facebook : Female Self Defence and Fitness Instagram: fsds.soton Email. fsds.soton@outlook.com

We will have information on training sessions as soon as possible!
