FREE Knives Self Defence Course

Rocky Seniors are inviting all 13-18 year olds to a FREE 1 hour Knives Self Defence course on Friday 25th January 17:00 – 18:00 here at Astley Sports Village.

As part of their Gloves Up Knives Down campaign this 1 hour self defence course provides an insight into the dangers of Knife crime, the common ways offenders will try and use a knife and how to not only defend yourself and get to safety but also how to treat a knife wound as part of the first aid module.

We want to stress to those who are attending and for parents who are looking to book their child’s place is that the session isn’t about trying to fight someone with a Knife. The first action point is to always escape the area where possible, however there will be occasions when this is not always possible and to learn some simple yet highly effective defence techniques can be the difference between life and death.

With knife crime sadly on the rise this session will provide many valuable techniques, first aid treatment responses and that confidence to avoid a knife attack or be able to use self defence to act quickly to then get away from the situation, get to safety and get help.
