Learn Self Defence - Get Fit - HAVE FUN !
Shooters Hill 6th Form College for Royal Greenwich Sensory Service supporting deaf students.
I was honoured to be invied to run a two and a half hour ‘self defence’ workshop for these
wonderful people. I admit at first I was hesitant and unsure of my abilties to cater for the
varying needs of the students, some of which are coping with cerebral palsy and other
physical disabilities, and some with visual and hearing impairments. It was soon obvious however that Naomi
Berry and Claire Dallison had organised everything perfectly, and had ‘hand sign’ experts and helpers on hand
ready to help.
Very quickly myself and fellow instructor Chris Schneider felt welcomed
and relaxed. As far as Chris and myself are concerned we had a
wonderful time and thoroughly enjoyed ‘our’ learning experience. I am
very grateful for the photo’s and comments
supplied by Naomi and Clair to mark this special event for us all.
I would like to thank you for delivering such an amazing workshop yesterday. Staff and students have been looking at the pictures
and discussing how fantastic both you and Chris were. You were able to keep all students engaged and were professional and funny
at the same time. I will send a review and the rest of the pictures shortly!
Thank you again.

John and Chris,
Thank you for running a fantastic Self Defence workshop for our Deaf students. Staff and students thoroughly enjoyed all the
techniques that you taught us. You were both professional and funny with the ability to keep everyone engaged.
You tailored the workshop perfectly to match our student’s needs by being fully inclusive, visual and breaking down each skill to
enable them to follow instructions given and practice independently.
The skills learnt have given them confidence and understanding how to keep themselves safe. We would recommend you to any
organisation looking for these skills.
Many Thanks, Royal Greenwich Sensory Service
