Below we describe the different facets of the self defence training:
We train you to use your best weapons when needed.
Your best weapons:
- feet (kicking)
- heel of the hand (striking).
For each of these, we will look at your individual technique and help you use the correct body mechanics to get the most out of each "weapon".
Any striking or kicking training is incomplete without Impact Training, which means hitting real targets (pads) so that you and the instructor can determine the power of each strike, and where to improve.
Impact Training means that when a situation arises, whatever it is, you can deliver a powerful attack at the moment it is required.
We train you for likely scenarios you could encounter.
A large part of the time in your training is focused on learning how to effectively respond in these scenarios.
In an unexpected situation, you could find yourself suddenly on the ground. You may have tripped, or you may be forced to the ground (or a bed).
We train you in ground specific techniques, including getting out of the situation where an opponent is close to you, or has you pinned in some way.
Ground based offensives (against attackers), ground situation responses, and ground escapes are all covered.
Its possible you could be attacked or find yourself in dangerous scenario with more than one person.
We train you in key footwork and movement principles designed for multiple attackers, and present situations with more than one person.
Not having any training in multiple attackers puts you at an extreme disadvantage, should the situation present itself.
In South Africa, women do find themselves in situations where men try to rape them.
Therefore, adequate self defence for women should include some training for rape situations.
We believe the rape response techniques we can train you in, are effective, and work against a stronger opponent.
Within each situation that you may face, different targets are available for striking.
Your training will teach you the most effective targets to attack in a given situations, allowing you to injure the attacker if necessary, and then escape.
