SELF DEFENCE WORKSHOP
“Self defence is not just a set of techniques,
it’s a state of mind and it begins
with the belief that you are worth defending…..”
A workshop on “Self Defence” was conducted in K.R. Mangalam World School, Gurugram for girl students of class IX. The resource person, Ms. Dipti Shankar, an expert on KravMaga and Kapap – Israeli form of defence tactics based on biomechanics, was invited to deliver the same.
Apprising the students about the importance of Self Defence, Ms Shankar quoted that one needs to tap one’s hidden physical strength and learn to RESPOND, not REACT.
She motivated the students to speak up about such crimes and gave them tips about what to do if they are trapped in an undesirable situation. She also gave the students a demonstration of street fight techniques in real life scenarios.Orientation and discussion were held on safety precautions at road, home, school, public places and also while using internet. The topic of prevention of child abuse was also discussed in detail so that the students could guide their younger siblings and classmates.It was indeed an interesting workshop with live demonstrations of the special technique of self defence. The girls thoroughly enjoyed the session and showed keen interest in interacting with the expert.
