Testimonial – Domestic abuse victim learns Self Defence with SDF Essex
From my initial inquiry 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. Thank you.
