Self defence is a bit like insurance for many of us. We know we should do something about it, but it’s not something we particularly like to think about. The sad fact is that there were 44,465 assaults reported in New Zealand last year (NZ Police Statistics, 2010). There is a very real chance that one day it will be you on the receiving end of an unprovoked assault, and the adverse consequences which can come from this are significant. But what can you do about it?
Long White Cloud Kung Fu offers short targeted self defence training courses to meet this need. Based on natural instinctive movements and drawing on thousands of years of martial arts history, our courses use the latest developments in training methodology and psychology to quickly build your confidence and give you the skills you need to keep yourself safe.
We make our training as realistic as possible, while keeping safety as our first priority, so you will be prepared in case of a real encounter. One of the tools we use for this is the Redman suit. This allows participants to practice what they have learned at full force against a living, breathing, moving assailant. It is also a lot of fun!
- Mental and physical preparedness
- How to identify and avoid a threat
- Simple instinctive responses that will fend off any attack
- Practice in realistic scenarios again the Redman!
