Confidence booster for West Bay women

| 06/11/2008

(CNS): With concerns about violent crime at an all time high women in the district of West Bay are being invited to a special one off self defence session being offered by the Cayman Islands Shotokan Karate Federation in conjunction with the Royal Cayman Islands Police Service (RCIPS).  Offering women some basic techniques should they ever face an attacker the class is intended to build confidence as well as some form of basic protection.

The  session has been organised in response to an increased fear of crime, particularly among the female population. The hour long class will give those attending the opportunity to learn a few self defence moves. “We know there is an increased fear of crime and this is just one of the ways that we are hoping to address it,” said Area Commander Chief Inspector Angelique Howell. “We hope that those attending will never have to use the moves they learn, however, if it helps to increase just one persons confidence it will be well worth it.”

The one off class will be held at John A Cumber Primary School on 12 November at 7:00pm

    Wow!  What a terrific idea! Hopefully all women would take advantage of this, it may just come in handy with all these horrific crimes that are taking place.
