"I liked how we learned about a stranger approaches you...you know what to do and I liked how we did the punches and kicks. Self Defence Rocks." - J aged 12.

A bit about Morgan Libeau:
Morgan is a qualified Self Defence Tutor who has been teaching for many 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'. 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.

Parents and caregivers are invited to be present and participate from 3pm-4pm on Saturday.
