SDFEssex testimonials – Domestic abuse victim attends self defence classes in Great Baddow Chelmsford Essex.
From my initial inquiry about SDF Essex Richard has been attentive to detail. He is incredibly passionate and his energy and pride is infectious.
I approached SDF Essex at a time when I was in a very dark place. Having had been in a very toxic and abusive relationship, it was suggested that I look into self defence classes.
Dubious to say the least I made my inquiries and Richard put me at ease from the very first interaction with him. He asked me questions although was always very considerate as not to pry.
Having now attended 5 sessions, I am pleased to say that Richard has really helped me along my road to recovery. He has always been considerate and conscious of the experiences I have been through and will always check to make sure that I really am okay.
He is flexible and encourages you to make as many classes as you can but there is no pressure to feel like you have to attend every week. For me this works out perfectly as a single parent and having only every other weekend free I can’t commit to make every Sunday.
He’ll work you hard and you certainly feel it for the week to follow but I feel invigorated, confident and empowered to take on the world.
SDFEssex Feed Back – Physical Activity for Duke of Edinburgh Award in Brentwood Essex
“Having moved to Essex with two teenage children, I wanted them to meet new people and try a new activity. I was recommended that they try SDF Essex.
I contacted Richard who was so helpful and my children decided to “give it a go”. They both really enjoy going with the bonus that this activity can be used towards their Duke of Edinburgh award. As a parent I now feel that they are getting fit, meeting new people and having the bonus of keeping themselves safe”
…”I joined the self defence classes in the summer of 2017 as a way of meeting new people due to recently moving to Chelmsford and to be part of my physical section for my Gold Duke of Edinburgh award. I have throughly enjoyed the year, getting to meet a range of different people and learning a range of skills to keep myself safe. Despite sometimes the cold wet weather, the community spirit was always good and kept me motivated. I would recommend this activity to anyone who wants to meet new people, keep fit and to be aware of how to protect yourself”.
SDF Essex Self defence Club
What happens after attending a beginners class in the next few self defence sessions?
Classes are on a pay as you go basis.
The structure of the first 6 to 8 weeks attended classes is that a variety of techniques are covered to give students a good general awareness, then beyond that skills can be refined and developed further.
This approach covers various types of attacks, which I believe is so important.
This all builds confidence as further techniques are taught.
