Club Wants To Start Women Only Self Defence Classes

Tuesday June 12 2012




A BARNSLEY Brazilian jujitsu club wants to start a woman's self defence class.

Daniel Bentley, who runs DKLBJJ at MST Academy, West Street, Worsbrough, was inspired to start the class by his wife, who started training six months ago.

Daniel, 27, and fellow organisers, Kye Arnold, 25 and Luke Bingham, 25, train at the club three times a week and said they feel it's very important for women to be able to defend themselves in a non-violent way.

The class will focus mainly on Brazilian Jujitsu and will teach woman defence techniques to ward off any attacker.

Daniel said: "All of the women we have spoken to so far have said they would love to do a self defence class.

"We want the class to attract a large number of women who can motivate each other to stick at it.

"It will build confidence as well as making them feel safer."
