Closed petition Add Self Defence to the National Curriculum from Year 7 upwards

There are more and more reports in the media about violence in society.
I believe putting both the theory and practical aspects of a self defence programme into the schools curriculum will help our young people to become more aware of dangers and help them better defend themselves.

More details

I also believe that any self defence programme instils self discipline and respect for others. Theoretically this could reduce the number of assaults that occur to everyone in the future.
