Self Defence & Wellbeing Society

Christ Church University/C4 Self Defence was set up in late 2016 (later becoming Self Defence & Wellbeing) after a few students who happened to be studying at the University wanted something a little lighter and easy to learn for their friends and students in general. This course and society is bespoke for the university and specific for those studying.

Whether you want to feel a bit safer on a Friday night, learn some useful skills or simply have some fun. Come along and get involved with our friendly and fun group and learn how to defend yourself.

University Committee:


President - Adam Parsons

Vice President - Hannah-Lucy Haith

Treasurer - Ben Reeves

Wellbeing/ Inclusion Officer - Sam Obbard

Social Secretary - Colby Marriage
