- A man is offering free self-defence classes
- He is based in Parklands, Cape Town
- Social media users were impressed by the initiative, considering the current situation in the country regarding abuse against women
A man has taken to social media to share that he is offering free self-defence classes to all women. This is so women can be better protected as South Africa has become a dangerous environment for them.
Kyle Pretorius took to his Facebook page and posted that he will be starting his first lesson this coming Saturday. The lessons will take place in a park in Parklands, Cape Town. The lessons will begin at 10:30am.
Ladies are encouraged to wear comfortable shoes and pants. There will be physical contact as the lessons involve defending oneself from danger. He said that the lessons will be 1.5 hours long and water should be carried.
Social media users were impressed by the noble gesture. Facebook user Martin Schofield said:
"Well done bro, this is a great initiative. Ladies kick ass and gents learn to behave so ladies don’t have to kick your ass."
While Vicki Mason said:
"Such a great thing you are doing!"
Nico Antonie Smit said:
"Well done Kyle on this absolutely awesome, but unfortunately much needed initiative. I hope you can inspire more stand-up dudes with your skill set to assist the ladies with self-defence."
