  • Understanding body language before conflict
  • Protecting your personal space
  • Pre-emptive strikes
  • Release from chokes & strangles
  • The Fence (protecting your personal space)
  • Defence against knife hold ups
  • Knowing when and how to strike
  • Self Defence and the Law in Ireland

This week they took part in a volleyball course. Students learned the key points of the sport. Over the next few weeks, they will coach 1st year students in volleyball during their PE classes.
