Free self defence seminar in Sheffield

A free self defence seminar is to be held in Sheffield after a ‘spate’ of attacks on women in the city.

The session takes place at the Old Junior School, Sharrow, on Monday, December 1 from 8pm and will last until around 9.30pm.

A woman was raped in the back of a car in Fox Hill, and a student was attacked in Crookes earlier this month.

Instructors Jayne Wharf and Garry Smith will give practical advice and physical self defence instruction.

Garry said: “This is about empowering ordinary women to fight back when there is no alternative.”
