Self-Defence with Sanjuro Training

During the winter term, all key stage 3 students took part in a self-defence lesson. We were honoured to work with the immensely talented instructors from Sanjuro training. The knowledge and practical skills that they gave our students was top class.

The three messages that the students learned were: Put it away (technology), Be aware and Follow your instincts.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank the PTA for their fantastic fundraising efforts to enable our students this opportunity. For more information on marital arts or self-defence please visit:

Student comments on the sessions:

“ I really enjoyed my time with the Sanjuro self-defence because what they have taught me will help me keep safe”. Charlott, Year 7

“I really liked learning the self-defence skills as it is different from my normal lessons. I am more prepared and I feel more confident too! Maryam – Year 7

“The last week teaching KS3 self-defence has been a pleasure. The girl’s enthusiasm to learn and support one another is a credit to all. Thank you for the opportunity to work with the girls at Highbury Fields School.  Enjoy life and be confident to follow your dreams” Anita and Glenn, Sanjuro Training
