This month we were joined by Chi from Saint Fury Fitness to learn some basic self-defence skills, based on Krav Maga.
As usual the Hackney Wicked Women were well prepared for some physical activity with leopard print dresses, flip-flops and popcorn-based snacks, but then surely most self-defence moments don’t occur when you are wearing gym gear and trainers, right?
Chi went through some sensible safety basics (one of his top tips is to avoid walking around with your headphones in, staring at your phone. Obvious really but I think we are all guilty of ignoring what is going on around us in favour of checking Instagram!).
We then kicked ass at some physical self-defence. It may have been in the middle of the heatwave but we are not afraid to get a bit sweaty!
And the prize for Wicked Woman we’d least like to meet in a dark alley? Definitely Rachel! She’s small but terrifying!!
If you came to the meeting and would like to leave some feedback for Chi, he would really appreciate it – head to his Facebook page to send him some love!
