On Saturday the 21st of April, Elite Taekwon-Do Academy began a Free 5 week self-defence course for girls aged between 12 and 16 years old. The respnse was very encouraging with 15 girls attending last Saturday morning.
The course is presented by Terry Donnelly assisted by Marie Attley and aims to increase the participants awareness of potentially dangerous situations. Emphasis is also placed on developing hard skills to be used when de-escalation strategies have not been successful.
The class continues for the next 3 Saturdays and is open to any girls aged 12-16 in the Rush, Loughshinny, and Skerries areas. Class is held at Elite Taekwon-Do Academy, Loughshinny Community Centre and class runs from 11.00-12.00.
