Women’s Self-Defense Seminar
March 23, 2013 4:30pm-6:00pm
Our standard self-defense seminar is approximately 90 minutes. The first 20 minutes includes a discussion focusing on how to avoid a self-defense situation, when to run away, and common myths surrounding self-defense. The physical component of the seminar is approximately 60 minutes. Participants are taught how to knee and elbow properly on heavy shield bags. Once this is accomplished, the seminar then teaches participants how to effectively employ these knees and elbows in a variety of scenarios (specifically, against a punch and against a bear hug). The final physical portion of the seminar focuses on defense against sexual assault, using basic grappling skills to fend off an assault. The seminar can be considered a mild workout but is not cardiovascular in nature.
What Makes our Seminars Different?
Many martial arts claim to teach self-defense but have never tested their techniques against fully resisting opponents, either in the ring or in real life. When forced into a real situation, these martial arts often fail, to the detriment of their practitioners. Kung Fu/Sanda is different. It was developed in China thousands of years ago as a primary means of defense and self-preservation, and every technique incorporated into the art has been tested against fully resisting opponents. This tradition continues to this day, and someone in either a full contact Sanda match, or in a real combat or self-defense situation has tested every technique taught at AKFSC. If it doesn’t work, we don’t teach it.
This is a free self-defense seminar that is limited to 30 participants. Please be considerate to others when reserving your space at the seminar and let us know if anything changes that will cause you not to make the class.
