Knife crime is a serious and growling problem in the UK, and has cost hundreds of innocent people their lives. While the government and authorities are tackling the issue, and trying to reduce the figures, we all need to take extra precautions, particularly when we're out on the street. The most effective form of self defence is prevention. Don't make yourself a target in the first place:

1. Avoid confrontations
2. Don't wave your valuables out on display
3. Don't walk around a night alone
4. Keep to crowded areas
5. Be vigilant

Unfortunately, no matter how many precautions you take, there is no guarantee you won't become a target. That is why it is also important to be able to defend yourself. There are several types of self-defence classes you can take, such as karate and judo, and they have the added benefit of be enjoyable, sociable activities that keep you fit.

But if you fancy trying something different from the usual martial arts classes out there, then why not try Krav Maga? It is a form of self-defence developed in Israel, and means 'contact combat' in Hebrew. It is an official training programme for the Israeli armed forces, as well as being taught to SWAT teams, military forces, and law enforcement units around the world.

Krav Maga is a lot quicker to learn than ancient forms of martial arts because it has now theory based lessons or sequences or poses to learn. That is why a two-hour crash course at the could be all you need to get you on the right tracks.

The class will take place at Soho Gyms on Wootton Street, Waterloo on the 22nd March between 2pm-4pm. You need to pre-book , and then email [email protected] to let them know you're going. It could be the £15 that saves your life.
