Hoping to start Self Defence 101 Club at Birkbeck

Hi all, Jacob (Undergrad) here
I've got a decent amount of experience with both learning and teaching martial arts, and I think that Birkbeck is in need of a basic self-defence club of some sort, especially since it's an evening uni; after attending lectures and classes in the evenings, students who study here have to head home fairly late which can be quite dangerous, depending on where they live. I see a great opportunity to start a club here, that would serve as a supplementary course to any other martial arts the students practice, enhancing their fighting and self-defence skills to make sure they can handle situations properly and stay within their limits.
I'm a very confident teacher, especially when it comes to martial arts, but there's a problem that's stopping me from going ahead with this idea: all Birkbeck clubs and societies require a three-person committee to lead them, and there's only one of me...
If you're interested in helping me make this a reality, please message me with some details (name, age, martial arts experience etc.) so we can organise a meet-up and get an application out!
