Published: 24 August 2022

Police and Crime Commissioner for Cheshire, John Dwyer, has partnered with ‘Self Defence with Clare’ to provide free classes for women and girls in Cheshire East.  One of the Commissioner’s key priorities is to make Cheshire’s streets safer for women and girls, and when approached by Clare he saw an opportunity to work with her to achieve this aim.  The course is open to women and girls from the age of 11 upwards and will be delivered over four weeks at Holmes Chapel (16:00 – 17:00) and Sandbach (19:00 – 20:00) on Tue 30 August, Tue 6 September, Tue 13 September and Tue 20 September.   Alsager (09:30 – 10:30), Nantwich (11:15 – 12:15) and Crewe (13:00 – 14:00) on Wed 31 August, Wed 7 September, Wed 14 September and Wed 21 September.  Venues will be confirmed to participants once registered for the course.   To book your place on the course, email selfdefencewithclare@yahoo.comOpens in a new window

Clare Challinor, who will be leading the self-defence classes, said:

“I feel that everyone can benefit from learning self-defence. The aim is to remove yourself from a situation that could potentially escalate. The course will teach you simple but effective ways to do this by using technique and not strength.”
