Our Member's Say

    Zee has been incredible! I never thought I'd be able to learn self defence and martial arts virtually but Zee makes the commitment easy. She's great at letting you go at your own speed while still pushing yourself to be better and stronger. I'm so happy that I found Zs Defence Academy! Highly recommended.

      Zee was an amazing instructor, breaking down the movements, and giving options for either high or low intensity depending on individual fitness capabilities. She makes self defence fun and enjoyable. Would strongly recommend joining a class and participate in Z's Defence Academy activities.

        Zee is a great instructor and her classes have a warm, friendly, fun and supportive atmosphere. Instructions are clear, repeated when needed and corrections or feedback is clearly given. Since beginning the classes, I have felt mentally and physically stronger, lost weight and become more toned. I have picked up a lot of useful techniques and gained more confidence in my abilities. The classes are easy to follow and adapted to suit all ranges of abilities.

          I recommended one of the classes to my mother who has also loved them. In particular, she has been able to move in ways she did not previously think was possible for her due to a health condition. She has gained more flexibility and confidence without being pushed beyond her abilities. She has found the adapted exercises and pace of the classes very helpful. We would both would strongly recommend Zee's classes.

            Zee is a brilliant instructor, full of enthusiasm and encouragement. She is very knowledgeable, skilful and inspiring. The classes are a great atmosphere and a good way to meet new people, whilst learning new skills and getting fit. Exercise is so good for you both mentally and physically, having a group to do it with is a good way to keep motivated. I feel much more confident, strong and positive about myself since joining the self defence class. I would definitely recommend getting involved with a class or activity the organisation is running, you will definitely not regret it!

              I was suffering massively during Covid and I was given me the number by a friend. I spoke to her and she gave me advice on how to improve my mental health. She is so knowledgeable and strong and supported me when I was at my lowest. She even sent me an email with information to look at for meditation to calm down during the panic attacks I used to get. In feb this year I joined her Sunday classes and I am so happy within myself. I become more confident, strong and feel empowered.

                During covid I was suffering with my weight and became really big. I didn’t now what to do and I came across a post on social media and offered me a free telephone consultation. This conversation then lead to a zoom call and transformed my life. I became more confident within myself and decided to join the online fitness class. The instructor Zee who delivered the session was so enthusiastic and very passionate about fitness. The administrator was also very support and guided me throughout the process. I have never zoomed before and was nervous but this charity helped me learned digital skills and get into fitness.


                  Age 39

                  This organisation have been very supportive towards my daughter who was suffering from mental health conditions. I contacted them to receive support for my 14 year old daughter and they were very helpful. They assessed her situations and recommended walking and fitness sessions. They followed through their promise and provided excellent service. My daughter has joined this academy and become a volunteer in supporting other women to become confident.

                  The objective of the activities were met
                  The Presenters were engaging and helpful
                  Members would recommend to freinds/family
