Role involves delivering classes on self defence this can either be on a theoretical or practical basis. The classes can sometimes be victims who are looking to protect themselves or ethnic minority groups where sensitivity and an understanding is needed. Also looking for someone to deliver fitness based classes both these classes would suit someone from a martial arts/aerobics/ fitness background or interest.
