A GYM is to offer free self-defence classes to women in the wake of Sarah Everard’s death.
Glove up for Good, a not-for-profit boxing gym based in Hailsham, will run the first session on Sunday, May 2.
This is what they say: “We have been saddened by recent news coverage about violence towards women.
This is not a recent thing, it has been going on for lifetimes.
But we are so glad it has been brought to the surface.
This is something that most women have experienced in one way or another.
So at GU4G we will be holding a one off self defence class, run by a qualified karate instructor.
This class will be FREE.
It will be followed by one for under 16’s at a later date.
Please message us if you are interested in attending.
We will also be handing out FREE rape alarms for all women that attend.
Spaces are subject to covid guidelines.
Thankyou to our sponsors @ltcroofingandbuilding”
