Senior Self Defence Classes
London Self-Defence Academy is proud to present self-defence courses for seniors citizens.
The elderly deserve respect; we all owe the generation before us a great deal. When we consider their input during the Second World War and more recent conflicts, we would not enjoy the freedoms we have grown perhaps too used to and of which we are not appreciative enough. We take our quality of life for granted.
London Self-Defence Academy’s Senior Self-Defence courses are intended for anyone who wants to learn how to protect themselves from potential dangers lurking on the street.
You will learn how to increase your self confidence, how to deal with fear, how to be able to escape potential attackers, and how to prevent bad situations from happening in the first place by becoming mindful and aware.
“Violent crime against the elderly has rocketed to record levels in Britain. Shocking statistics uncovered by the Daily Express show the number of over-65s subjected to assaults has soared by nearly 260 per cent in the past 10 years.”
“The largest number of elderly victims of violent crime live in London. In 2017, there were 5,309 assaults recorded against over-65s by the Metropolitan Police – an increase of 130 per cent since 2007 when there were 2,301 attacks.”
The statistics are horrifying but with our courses you don’t have to be afraid anymore. Even if you are differently abled or not fully mobile, you will be able to succeed in protecting yourself and staying safe.
Did you know that an umbrella or a walking stick can be used to defend yourself? In the right hands it can become an effective and brilliant weapon. We will show you all the practical tricks and self-defence techniques which you will be able to use no matter what age you are.
London Self-Defence Academy is here to help you stay safe.
