We decided to send our daughter to Activ8 self defence as she was being physically and mentally bullied at school. Before she started, it took her 6 months to tell someone she was being bullied. She was only 6 years old.
Self-defence over the last few years has not only given her confidence, it has also helped to realise that other children cannot hurt her without consequences. If she has a problem now, she speaks out about it and no longer bottle things up. She also knows she does not have to put up with bullies.
The self defence classes are fun and the children and parents are warmly welcomed. The students are always polite and well behaved and enjoy what the instructors teach them.
