White Ribbon Day is upon us. Empower yourself with these free seminars.

Patricia Lyons, a 3rd degree Blackbelt, has been teaching Martial Arts for eighteen years. Together with her Master John Gill, they will be contributing to White Ribbon Day awareness through a series of free self-defence classes for women in the Sydney area.

The seminars will teach the most effective sexual assault defence strategies and how to escape an abduction, which Lyons hopes will empower women to feel more confident about how to escape potentially life-threatening situations. The seminars are fun, practical and easy to learn and suitable for women of all ages. They will be held at Glebe PCYC, 2‐8 Minogue Crescent, Glebe, on Tuesday afternoon, 22nd November 2011 from 4.30‐6 pm and again on Saturday 3rd December 2011 from 2‐3.30 pm.
