Apparently self defence classes for women have become much more popular since the assaults in Cologne at New Year.
Is it not finally time that self defence was taught in schools? Let us start with age appropriate classes from a young age. Maybe teach girls separately from boys to start with, and as part of the teaching to boys they can learn that fighting is not for everyday, girls are not for bullying, and neither are other boys.
As they get older then teach about relationships, about respect, about consent.
For sure then the amount of bullying and sexual assault will reduce.
Does anybody know of schools where self defence is on the curriculum?
