Last week, Chris Denwood conducted a personal safety workshop for local Women's Institute (Haven Sent WI). With help from senior student John Smallman, they spent a couple of hours talking to a range of women about how they may make themselves a 'harder target' by developing good awareness skills and making simple but effective changes to their everyday habits. Chris also led the group through some exercises that emphasised how to use the voice effectively and how best to control range in order to help 'stack the deck' in their favour.
Everyone seemed to really enjoy the event and took home with them the key message that 'the best form of self-defence is avoidance and if you are not 'switched on' in the first place, then every potential confrontation will turn out to be a surprise!'.
Here's a brief testimonial from the organisers:
"Thanks to the guys at E.S.K.K Martial Arts & Fitness for delivering a really useful and engaging look at self-protection and personal safety. Our group was a mix of ladies of all ages and the advice and demonstrations given were relevant to us all. Most self-defence seems to look at how to get out of threatening situations once you are in them. This was a really refreshing look at the subject, learning how to avoid getting into these situations to start with – a much more realistic and relevant look at self-defence. We would definitely recommend this workshop to other groups." - Haven Sent WI
