Petition Make self defence part of the physical education curriculum

With more and more assaults and the increase of knife crime, I think it should be mandatory that schools teach their students self defence.

More details

In 2017, there were just under 39,600 recorded offences involving the use of a knife or sharp instrument in England and Wales. That’s the highest level recorded over a year since comparable figures began in 2011.
