SELF DEFENCE CLASS - NEXT CLASS TBA
Don't want to spend time learning martial arts or complicated fighting systems, just interested in something like a 'first aid' class? Attend a 2 hour 'Functional Edge' self protection class taught by senior Aikido instructor Janice Hemmings
Self Defence classes are usually held according to demand. A class costs £15 - please pay by cash or cheque, or pay a deposit via PayPal.
Coach Tony Torres 'Functional Edge' is a simple but clever way of adapting our basic 'startle' and 'fight/ flight/freeze' responses into a way for people who don't want to fight, to have a better chance of surviving the most common attacks. No particular fitness is required, and there is no falling down.
It is being increasingly taught to people like teachers and NHS and care workers to defend themselves. It is a simple and easy to learn approach which is effective in a short period of time.
After only 2 hours a modest degree of competence can be achieved. We also put responses into the appropriate legal context to ensure that your justifiable response does not lead you into legal trouble.
The classes are taught by Aikido 5th dan instructor Janice Hemmings, who is also a certified instructor in this system. There are two 2 hour classes, to provide plenty of time for warming up, review and questions.
The classes take place in the London Aikido Club dojo which is a small permanently matted martial arts club in Stoke Newington.
Please wear loose and comfortable clothing. Practice is in bare feet or with socks on.
