SELF DEFENCE Workshop for Women

  • Light Centre Monument 36 St Mary at Hill, London EC3R 8DU United Kingdom (map)

with Pilar De la Guardia

Self Defence is a life skill. Yet, sadly, we may not realise just how important it is until it is too late.

Join us with Pilar De la Guardia for a 90 minute women only self defence class, to equip yourself with the skills and confidence to defend yourself against the most common attacks you may face. Hopefully you will never need to use the teachings of this method, but why wait to find out.
