Self defence for students

Students at Derby College’s Ilkeston campus have been learning self defence and safety tips from Derby Tae Kwondo instructors.

The sessions have included how to spot and respond to possible dangers, avoiding becoming a victim of theft and assault and keeping safe on dark nights.

Fiona Skinner from the college said: “Young people often do not recognise the dangers in situations and actions and the feedback to the sessions has been very positive with the students really appreciating the support and advice.”
