- Gabrielle Grant, 4 Week Self Defence Course
My daughter and I enrolled in a four week course run by the Self Defence Hub. Our instructor, Andre was a wonderful teacher who provided clear and useful instructions whilst creating a friendly, cooperative environment with the other students; it was both an enjoyable and empowering experience.
I would highly recommend this course for all women interested in self defence.
