Oval & Hibernia Cafe
Jumping outside the box for Spence Club, we had the pleasure of hosting a private session with the wonderful Carly Gagnell and Margie Nottle of Females Fighting Forward - a South Australian, female owned and led Martial Arts Training group with a mission to empower women in building greater self-confidence, strength and resilience.
Both Carly and Margie offered a wealth of knowledge on not only the physical side of self defence, but the emotional and theoretical side as well, focusing on manoeuvres to get out of commonly experienced violence issues facing women in Australia.
After an hour and a bit of self defence moves,practised (safely) with each other, the women of Spence Club then made their way over to the beautiful Hibernia Cafe to enjoy 'Spencette' smoothies, Spence protein balls and a spot of networking.
At the cafe we were able to look back over the experience we had just had and think about the value and importance of being educated in self-defence. Whilst of course it is hoped that one would never require these skills, the
experience showed just how helpful a basic understanding is in feeling empowered and confident.
We would like to extend a massive thank you to our sponsors,Females Fighting Forward for your time, expertise and passion. Hibernia Cafe for a wonderful meal and a lovely venue and KX Pilates and Ryderwear for their generous door prizes.
