REDKITE Self Defence, Assertiveness & Self Awareness Workshop

Redkite Kru Rachel Joyner previously worked for the Probation Service and Young Peoples services where she worked directly with people with varying degrees of behavioural issues and also delivered Accredited Group Sessions to adult offenders.

As the gym has become more successful, she has looked to expand the facilities and content of what the club has to offer by introducing workshops specifically linking her passions, previous elements of her work experience along with her love of health, fitness and mental and physical well being.  She has looked at issues that currently affect people on a daily basis and is endeavoring to develop programmes and workshops that can help people feel physically and emotionally at their best.

Redkite offer a three hour workshop (approx) the majority of the workshop focuses on simple defence techniques (not Muaythai) whilst covering explanations of minimal force and what that means with regards to defending yourself.  We also cover issues such as domestic violence, self respect, social media pressures for young women and girls.

Though the topic is serious, we aim to ensure that the participants have fun, feel comfortable and able to debate and discuss the issues whilst getting involved in some simple yet effective defence moves.

REDKITE Street Smart, Muaythai Is My Gang Workshop

20th August 2019

Working with Preston Police and Yooof Zone, we will be running a 1 day workshop that encompasses not only the muaythai training but also some other elements covering issues that young people face today.

The day will be split into two with younger children age 6 - 10 in the opening and 11 to 17 year olds in the sftafternoon . Preston Police will be delivering age appropriate first aid in both sessions and taking about Laws related to gangs such as 'Joint Enterprise' and speaking about their experience of victim impact.

Stephen Mellor, Director of Yooof Zone, will be talking to the older group about his experiences in prison and how his choices have effected his future.

The workshop to include Muaythai training. This is with the view of either introducing new people to the sport or giving our Redkite members and extra training facility over the holidays. It is to

promote the idea of being a part of a local team, striving towards fitness and positive life goals with the backing and support of their team mates and the club as a whole.

Interlinked with this and utilising my previous experience as a Probation Service Officer and Youth Worker, I will discuss gang culture and knife crime whilst looking at Consequential Thinking and look into how to make a well informed choice. Looking at and being aware of the consequences of their decisions. This will not be solely focused on knife crime but will lend itself to various challenges young people will face over the course of their young lives and hopefully be a skill transferable into adulthood.

I will also coach some simple break out techniques.

I intend the day to be fun but informative.

The workshop will be suitable for ages 6 up to age 17. The police will be bringing a police van for the children to get a real close up.

The early session us £10.00 and will run from 9am to 12pm

The later session will be £15.00 and run from 12 30pm to 4.30pm

Please BOOK ASAP to endure your child's place on the course.
