A PENARTH fitness instructor is hoping to arm women with the right skills to defend themselves by holding an innovative self-defence workshop .

Penarth resident and former boxer Jason Orchard, who turned his attentions to ladies only self-defence classes following a stint working as a bouncer, has used his experience to create a self-defence programme to arm women with the right skills and confidence to defend themselves.

“It will cut straight to the chase and arm you with essential skills to effectively defend yourself using proven techniques that will help you overcome almost any unforgiving situation,” he said.

The bootcamp will take place from 10am until 2pm on Sunday, May 18, at Dragon Crossfit in Cardiff Bay,
