Breakaway Training

Computer Key - Escape button

We realise that many staff attending a breakaway course are very apprehensive as they are not sure what to expect. This introduction aims to put your minds at rest.

You are not there to throw each other around. It is about learning techniques to escape safely from an aggressor when all else has failed, to give you the confidence to be able to escape without injury to yourselves or the assailant, and to get help.

You will find the course is designed not only to be informative, but also fun. It does not require strength or the need to be especially fit. Staff of all ages and abilities can participate, although we will want you to tell us if you have any medical conditions, which might limit your participation.

You will find all the instructors very approachable and willing to help. Please come along and enjoy the training.
