Why every sex worker should take self defence lessons.

Self-defence is important to learn for sex workers of all genders. The risk of violent attack is high in the sex worker industry.

We are running free self defence courses one weekend a month at our premises in Melton Mowbray, Leicestershire. We can cater for up to max of 10 people.

Our club has mats down for safety. Attendees only need to bring gym clothing or other clothing that is light and flexible like leggings and  T-shirts. Please don%u2019t wear Jeans. We also advise you to bring a bottle or water or sports drink. You will be bare footed. We can cater for up to 10 people at a time. I will be attending with my instructor who will be teaching, and I will be the demonstrator.

My instructor is fully insured, enhanced DBS checked and used to be a serving officer in Army so has plenty of experience with self-defence techniques.

Our next class is a Sunday in May 1pm till 5pm. It will be 4 hours in duration with 15 min breaks in-between. This course is free of charge for any sex workers attending. (Please email or pm for exact dates or for further info).

What does self-defence teach? Self-defence is great to learn for sex workers (any gender). What we teach: Body confidence - Sometimes people try to bully you, especially if you are smaller than them, or seem timid. Sometimes all it takes is to portray yourself as confident. Being able to stand up to someone with body confidence who is intimidating you, is all it takes to stop anything escalating further. We teach you, body confidence, standing your ground and de-escalation techniques if you ever feel you're in a vulnerable situation.
