Classes to make Bangor kids safer

After young people in Bangor said that they didn't feel safe when on the street, one self-defence tutor has stepped in to help.

The "No Surrender" courses don't just show the defensive moves, but more importantly it teaches youths who to tell about the attack. Instructor Stu McGregor's been telling Heart that its also about giving confidence to know they can safely walk down the street. 

They will take place at the Garth Community Centre in Bangor this month. 

The sessions for 11-13 year olds start on Tuesday 14th August 10.30am-1.30pm, while 14-16 year olds can begin on Wednesday 15th August 10:30am-1:30pm.
