WOMEN’S ONLY SELF DEFENCE COURSE FOCUSING ON PREVENTING SEXUAL ASSAULT
Learn to be Safer & More Confident...
In 2017/18 there were almost 54,000 rape offences recorded by the Police in England and Wales, an increase of over ten thousand when compared with the previous year*. Sexual assault is a serious offence and has a devastating impact on victims and their families.
In January 2013, An Overview of Sexual Offending in England and Wales, the first-ever joint official statistics bulletin on sexual violence released by the Ministry of Justice (MoJ), Office for National Statistics (ONS) and Home Office, revealed:
Approximately 85,000 women and 12,000 men (aged 16 - 59) experience rape, attempted rape or sexual assault by penetration in England and Wales alone every year; that's roughly 11 of the most serious sexual offences (of adults alone) every hour.
Only around 15% of those who experience sexual violence report to the police
Approximately 90% of those who are raped know the perpetrator prior to the offence
These figures are staggering, the plain and simple fact is that you know someone who has or will be a victim of a serious sexual related crime.
Defiance Self Defence is the premier realistic self-defence school in Kent. We have taught thousands of people how to defend themselves and have over 15 years of experience in Krav Maga (KM). Krav Maga is Krav Maga is a military self-defence and fighting system developed for the Israel Defence Forces (IDF) & Israeli security forces. It has since been further developed for civilian training and spread around the world.
It is derived from a combination of techniques sourced from Boxing, Wrestling, Aikido, Judo, Karate along with realistic fight training. Krav Maga is known for its focus on real-world situations and its extreme efficiency.
At Defiance we work closely with our students to stop them from becoming a statistic, our training will give you the tools and mindset to be better able to deal with any situation you may find yourself in.
