Updated 22 May:  A minor change … for logistical reasons the seminar is now being held on Sunday 12 June, not Saturday 11.

Original post 21 May: I’ve been asked about this sort of thing several times, so I’m really pleased to be able to say that I now have details of a women’s self defence & awareness seminar given by Kevin Summers here in Tenerife. Kevin is a 7th Dan Tae Kwon Do master and founder of Independent Martial Arts Europe (IMAE). He says that any women can do the seminar, and that there’s no required level of fitness, and that he will be helping women with awareness and defence in all sorts of situations where they might be endangered … everything from bag snatching to rape.

Some details. The event is on Saturday 11 June, 2-5pm, and costs €20. A level 1 certificate will be issued on completion of the course, and Kevin asks those attending to wear loose fitting clothing and bring a drink. To reserve a place or to ask for further details, email tenerifetkd@gmail.com, or call in at Bulldog gym in Las Chafiras. Kevin says he also does individual or private group tuition, but this particularly seminar has its own Facebook event page HERE, which has directions to the gym and a map for those who don’t know where it is.
