Self Defence for Freshers

Self defence is all about practicality, using simple common sense, awareness of environment, making good choices and where necessary some physical techniques.

So all in all a  great start to the new academic year with a number of new students joining us in the first few weeks with a focus on building confidence and teaching some basic self defence techniques.

Moving on to teach the basics of our style of jiu jitsu and some more interesting techniques to round off the introductory sessions.

We look forward to further working with the students, making them aware of the potential dangers of new places and dark / late nights, and teaching them how to respond in various situations.

 

Freshers Fayre 21st September 2013

This Saturday  is the annual Freshers Fayre at WInchester University.

This is a great opportunity for all students (new and old) to check out what WInchester SU has to offer.

We will be manning a stand, so pop along to see us, say Hi, and have a chat – yo never know we may even persuade you to join us at a training session.
