Master Moss ran a 'Passive Self Defence' session at the Northampton University on Thursday 17th October, one of the participants Faiz Anuar says about the session "CMBBA provides a safe trial session in my University and from the basic skills that I've learnt and done, I'd love to say that it is a very classy and safe place to learn martial arts, and could build self confidence too. It turns everyone into a respectful guy with the mannerism and feels of respect that they teach". 
 
☯ Travelling to and from University late at night 
Luckily, for most of us, it’s very safe to walk out and about late at night or take the bus/train there and back. However there are risks so it makes sense to take the following advice to improve your safety and confidence when you are travelling to and from University. 
 
When Walking 
If possible travel with a friend or group of friends. 
Stay alert – Keep an eye on everything that is happening around you. 
Avoid wearing earphones or chatting on your mobile phone, as this will distract you from your surroundings and you may not see or hear trouble approaching. The sooner you are aware of potential danger, the easier it is to avoid it. 
Keep both hands free and don’t weigh your-self down with lots of heavy bags – you need to be able to move easily. 
Trust your instincts – If you have a ‘funny feeling’ about someone or something, don’t ignore it, act on it straight away. 
Take the route you know best and stick to busy, well-lit streets. 
Avoid danger spots like subways, deserted parks and badly-lit areas. 
Walk in the middle of the pavement, facing oncoming traffic. This will avoid any cars driving up alongside you as you walk. 
Think about your route home. Where would be a safe place to go if something went wrong? Safe places might be busy places like shops or garages, friends’ houses or a police station. 
Have your keys ready so you can get into your home or in your car quickly. 
 
If getting into your car, discretely check the rear seats on approach, it has happened that someone has driven off with an un-invited traveller in the back - if so make it look like you have forgotten something before unlocking the door and walk off to report it
