Wynberg Girls’ Alumnae – Self-Defence Workshop
The Wynberg Girls’ Alumnae will be hosting a self-defence workshop on Saturday, 21 September 2019 at 10h00 at WGHS. This workshop will be presented by Sanette Smit (Smitti), an 8th Dan Black Belt Karate expert with over 40 years’ experience in self-defence.
Any woman at any time can find herself in a threatening situation. The skills you learn in this workshop will add to your personal safety, your confidence, strength and intuition.
Smitti presented a workshop last year and it was so successful! She’s agreed to return for a second workshop so that more women can be empowered. Smitti’s two-hour workshops are adaptable for women of all ages, shapes and sizes. We will learn how to identify potential threats – including rape – and how to apply techniques to defend ourselves.
When: Saturday, 21 September 2019. 10h00 to 12h00.
Venue: Wynberg Girls’ High School, Aliwal Road, Wynberg
Who can attend: All women 15 years and older are welcome. If there is a group of girls between the ages below the age of 15 that wish to attend, Margaret Neethling (senior self-defence instructor) will be available to present an age-appropriate introductory lecture prior to the joint physical training session
How to book: Space is limited. To reserve your spot or for more info, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or phone a committee member of the Wynberg Girls’ Alumnae at 082 4144 771. In reply, we will send you the banking details and directions.

Who is hosting this: The workshop is hosted by the Wynberg Girls’ Alumnae, a network that supports and applauds past learners of Wynberg Girls’ Schools and women everywhere.
