The best way to defend yourself is to preempt your enemy. 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 Right to Safety was conducted in K.R. Mangalam World School, G.K. II on 11 October 2019 for girls of classes 6-10. The resource person, Mr. Deepak Verma from International Ultimate Krav Maga Foundation teaching Israeli Defence System has been inculcating self defence skills to women, as a part of Right to Safety Programme.
Apprising the students about the importance of Self Defence, Mr. Verma said that one needs to tap one’s hidden physical strength and learn to RESPOND, not REACT.He motivated the students to stay alert in such circumstances and avoid panicking. He also gave them tips about what to do if they are trapped in an undesirable situation. A demonstration of street fight techniques helped children to understand the relevance of the methods taught.
