Thameside School in Abingdon – the home of the ladies self defence classes – may have closed for the summer, but the ladies kept on learning. Laura taught some classes outside while taking advantage of the great weather and the open space of the Abbey Meadows. The ladies all appreciated keeping the classes going for them to learn new techniques, despite the usual home being closed for the holidays.

As well as taking the self defence outside, Laura and Kevin also joined the Abingdon W.I. in the summer holidays too. Laura approached them a few months back to make them aware of who Kyushindo Ladies Self Defence were, and their goals in the community. After the a ten minute presentation, flyers were handed out and questions were answered. Laura and Kevin are looking forward to be taking a class at the W.I. in 2015, watch this space.
