New Delhi: With crimes against women increasing, the need has been felt for every woman being able to possess the basic knowledge about self-defence -- and to meet this need, sports and fitness consultancy firm Endzone has announced free self-defence camps for women.
The capital has, of late, witnessed number of crimes against women and the most recent was the gang-rape of a 23-year-old girl in a moving bus on December 16, which shook the entire nation.
According to Divyu Gupta, vice president of Endzone, knowing the techniques of self-defence helps build confidence among women.
"Today, when women's safety is at stake, we believe that it is time that maximum awareness about self-defence is created. Although we've been conducting classes for quite some time now, we feel that we must do more in order to reach out to as many women as possible," Gupta said in a statement.
"As an initiative, we are announcing Free Self Defence workshops in Delhi and NCR for girls and women of all age groups," he added.
The workshops will be conducted in January and one can get the details from the website endzone.co.in.
