A serious subject dealt with in a fun way for girls aged 7-12.

Comments from previous participants about what they liked:

"I liked the class because it was all girls taught to be safe. I liked my teacher."

"Standing strong, roleplaying, shin and knee kick, punching. Drawing meeting new people, lunch."

"Blocking, punching, shouting, kicking, my favourite is having lunch, and learning how to keep safe."

Comments from parents/caregivers:

"Boosted self and other awareness. Improved self confidence. Thanks"

"Confidence in her ability to deal with 'difficult situations' and more awareness that these exist! Enjoyed seeing her strong and powerful."

"(name) has experienced an increase in confidence subsequent to her first self defence course. In addition she takes more pleasure, satisfaction and interest in her own physical strength and prowess."

A bit about Morgan Libeau:

Morgan is a qualified Self Defence Tutor who has been teaching now for over 15 years. Initially she taught women and girls Self Defence but for some years has now concentrated only on the children's class.

Morgan has written a number of books for children and young people on issues of sexual abuse, therapy and court preparation for child witness's. She believes that if information is given to children appropriately it will make them feel safe instead of scared, enabling higher self-esteem and confidence.
