STUDENTS and teachers from Pestalozzi took part in an introduction to kickboxing and self-defence.

The seminar was run by Hastings Kickboxing Academy (HKA) at William Parker Sports College, and 15 students and 5 teachers took part.

Carl Denne, owner of HKA, said: “I’ve worked with the school before and they are always great and enthuthiastic students, making it easy to teach.

“I feel self-defence in day-to-day life is a must these days, although I teach kickboxing seven days a week the two skills/arts mix fantastically well. Stance, positioning, balance, confidence are the same in both.”
