My name is Pauline Spencer and I am delighted you have taken the first steps to keeping yourself safer. Ladies that Punch is a self defence class with a difference. The classes are strictly for ladies only which means your instructor is also female. Believe me, this is quite a rarity in this male dominated field. Not only that, the classes are flexible to suit your needs.
Ladies that Punch is open to any female regardless of fitness levels or age. You do not have to have any previous martial arts experience or need to be fit as a fiddle (especially as I am neither of these things!) to attend. If you are under the age of 16 then you must be accompanied by an adult.
Why not come along with a friend or family member? If you are coming on your own, a warm and friendly welcome awaits you where you will feel relaxed and at ease. If you have any concerns please do not hesitate to get in touch. Please don’t let a little bit of nerves or apprehension put you off learning some potentially life saving skills.
My Ladies that Punch Journey
I was recently asked by one of my girlfriends why I have never shown her how to protect herself from someone attacking her. I scrambled around for an answer but soon realised I didn’t have one. You see, I’ve been delivering self defence, personal safety and control and restraint training now for about 10 years to people whose jobs put them at risk of violence and aggression. My job is to try and help people stay safer at work. What I’d never given much thought to is “Why am I not doing the same for people who I love and care about?” After a bit more thought and consideration I thought “Every woman out there is loved and cared about by someone – shouldn’t I be thinking about them too?
And so began the Ladies that Punch journey.
I am based on the South Coast but am willing to travel to different locations. Please get in touch with your specific requirements.
