The program targets girls and young women aged 12 and 18, and runs each Friday from the Youth Centre in Success.

It focuses on basic self-|defence and building confidence in those taking part.

It was prompted by feedback from young women in the area.

Youth services manager Michelle Champion said it was so popular further classes are being explored.

�Youth Services are investigating the possibility of putting on a second session,� she said.
