Please contact us with your details to discuss further.

The participant. Case Study One.

Karen is a 29 female, Black-British, single with one child.

Please tell us why you became involved in the project?

I thought it was a great opportunity to get involved, it was something I always wanted to do and I saw it was also got to do with personal development and it was something I always wanted to take part in.

Please tell us how participating helped you?

It has made me feel a lot stronger inside spiritually and physically, it has made me more confident keeping me and my son safe, in the home or outside. I am less scared of confrontation now.

Please tell us what has changed for you as a result of engaging with the project?

I am lot happier and I feel a shift in the way I feel about myself. It has really helped my self-worth. Since starting with you I have got a lot of rubbish out of my life. I feel more assertive about making decisions and sticking with them.

Anybody that has the opportunity to take this course will be very lucky and it is an experience and it has been amazing. Seriously.

I have put what I have learned into practise and it has worked and have also used it in real life situations.

The participant. Case Study Two.

Donna is aged 34, female, who is Black-British and a single mother.

Please tell us why you became involved in the project?

I joined the project because of previous domestic violence, and a history of abuse. My daughter was also part of the project because of her experience of abuse. Her father had abducted my daughter a year ago from school, and had tried to take her. This situation was traumatising for both me and my daughter. It was dealt by the police on a serious high level. In addition my daughter was also being bullied at school, and had been assaulted by one of her peers.

All of this was affecting my daughterís self-worth and confidence levels, because of my daughters experience with her father and school.

I donít trust anyone because of these experiences, I felt isolated because of all the negative experiences. I would freeze when situations happened, and I wanted to stop this, wanted to change things. I met Fran from Victimís Support (who had attended one of our projects earlier in the year) and she recommended the course to me and my daughter.

Please tell us how participating helped you?

Participating in this course has helped us both build our confidence. It has empowered us in skill and knowledge, made us feel stronger. I am confident my daughter can now defend herself if someone approaches her. I have also made new friends, and she says; ďI look forward to each week, and feel sad it is ending. It has helped us greatly and thank you for that.Ē

Please tell us what has changed for you as a result of engaging with the project?

We know how to defend ourselves, not to freeze in situations, knowledge is power and itís made us stronger. We have learnt that we can alert people, and know how to help ourselves in many situations, DV, public places and you have taught us great things and empowered us in knowledge and skills. For example, my daughter feels that if her father tried to abduct her again she would be able to get out of that situation.Ē

The participant. Case Study Three.

Amy is a 29 year old female, British, who is currently single.

Please tell us why you became involved in the project?

Iíve done self-defence in the pass which I really enjoyed, earlier this year I was a victim of a common assault at work, working with vulnerable young people with complex needs, e.g. substance miss-use, mental health needs etc., it was a bit complicated, in relation to what happened. They wanted to bring in stolen goods I refused entry of this, this meant that this young person got another young person, who was very vulnerable and owed them money to actually carry out the assault; they threatened the person to carry out the assault, and used intimidation and other tactics because of their position. They have a history of family serious offending.

The organisation I worked for they didnít always disclose the risk needs of the young person, a lot of people are scared of this young person, family history of offending, young persons history was very risky. They bullied and threaten other people so they would use their authority and position at the project.

Please tell us how participating helped you?

It has given me knowledge. I have been passed down wisdom in sharing stories and my experiences. It has also increased my awareness and built my confidence through the physical activities, through the drills, and practical activities.

I feel more confident, given the resources I need. For example, understanding how to protect myself if I was ever in a similar situation and felt threatened.

Please tell us why you became involved in the project?

Self-defence was on my - to do list, a skill worthy of having, and I hadnít made any effort previously. I had a meeting and the worker told me about the course so I joined.

Please tell us how participating helped you?

Safety aspects has helped me, informative e.g. if someone goes for my valuableís and personal safety (self) I know what to do, throw my things away and look for my escape routes.

It has been good for my self-esteem to do something. I have not been working and studying and being around other people has been good for my self-esteem.

Please tell us what has changed for you as a result of engaging with the project?

I feel more confident if something was to happen I would know what to do. I feel confident in the practical skills as they were all new to me, knowing how to do them and practising them. I feel more confident within myself.

I have really enjoyed the course and I would have liked to do a longer course.

I really enjoyed the role play and it has proofed to me how much I had taken in and learned. It felt very positive and worth it. I have learned a lot and doing it practically was a good way of presenting.

Very very useful and very important skill for people to do and learn.

The participant. Case Study Five.

Sandra is a single 50 year old female, who is English and lives on her own.

Please tell us why they became involved in your project?

I became involved in the project to find out more about the law and be able to protect myself and any young people I have with me. I currently work with young people and it is very important to me that they understand the law and what their rights are when dealing with confrontation and authority.

Please tell us how participating helped you?

By participating in this course it helped me a lot. It taught me some more skills, I didnít know about and re-enforced skills I had. It improved my accuracy on some self-defence moves I already had, increased my level of fitness which I now realise I have to improve.

I have made friends on this course and I will be continuing exercising with them when we find a suitable class to join.

Please tell us what has changed for you as a result of engaging with the project?

It has re-affirmed my knowledge on the cycle of abuse what can happened in risky relationships, and also re-affirmed how I should conduct myself in public, how to be more aware and what to do if I find myself in a dangerous situation. It has taught me about the law.

The best things about the course were the scenarios that took place that you can transfer to real life situations.

Also the style the trainer used to deliver the course.

It increased all of the participantís confidence levels on the course of when they first started to when leaving. And it was useful to have outside agencies come in to support Sev.

It would be good if this course could be extended and have a part two, to gain more knowledge and skills. This course is essential for all community members young and older to learn these invaluable skills.

It has defiantly given me insight on how to protect myself and given me knowledge of the law, aware of new things that I didnít know and I like that. I learnt a lot from the theory side and from the practical side I learnt moves and different scenarios on how to protect myself and that has been very powerful for me.

What changed for you as a result of engaging with the project?

It has given me a start, and convinced me to keep up my fitness, made me more confident if I am walking home late at night and not be so afraid and timid and not put out energy of scared. But to be confident so I am more aware and could handle myself if something happened.

This is especially good for people like me who have children, to know how to handle myself while travelling.

When I had my car it was ok, I felt there was less danger, now I travel on TFL it can be dangerous at times. Lots more situations that can occur so I need to be able to look out for and know what to do if they arise. I feel confident I can now handle these situations.

I found the course very rewarding and I would defiantly recommend it to family and friends I know.

The club was now empty and my husband had gone outside, I asked the bouncer if I could go to the toilet and he refused and he said you canít do anything you want because you are an American, it felt like he was discriminating against me. He grabbed me from behind at the throat and I realised that I didnít know what to do. And threw me out of the club.

I felt fear, I didnít know what to do, and I was confused because I couldnít understand why he wanted to use such violence over something so small.

If a situation like this would arise again I know what to do in self-defence as I have learned so many things.

And it has allowed me to discover me. It has enabled me to be more myself like I use to be. Before I was outgoing but after I became homeless I became an introvert now I am back to my old self.

I have found my inner lioness. I feel more like a warrior.
