THE second Self-Defence for Women Day will be held at the Indoor Sports Pavilion of Torre de Benagalbon on March 8.
This sports event, which will take place between 10 am and 2 pm, has been organised to commemorate International Women’s Day, with classes focused on teaching women how to react were they face an attack. The classes will be taught by experts, amongst which is Sports councillor, Lydia Montes, who has participated in national Taekwondo competitions.
Ms Montes stressed the great success of lasts year’s edition, when more than 50 women received practical training on the matter.
“The goal of this event is to train women with basic self-defence notions, so that they feel confident were they to face an attacker,” said Ms Montes, who reminded people that thanks to last year’s edition, a Self-Defence Municipal School for adults was created in the town.
Inscriptions are free and can be made before March 6 at the Sports Office located in the Indoors Sports Pavilion Ruben Ruzafa in Torre de Benagalbon.
