Stellenbosch University Tygerberg Campus - First Dose of Self Defense
"In war there are no winners, only survivors"
When you find yourself in a sticky situation....or rather, when you find yourself being attacked by an armed criminal, what do you do?
Recently students of Stellenbosch University Tygerberg Campus were posed with this question. What do you do when you are being attacked by an assailant. Run! As fast as you can would be the answer of choice but sometimes you do not always have this choice. Sometimes you need stand and fight. Or at least defend yourself.
Sensei Dean "Stormforce" Johnson of Lethal Edge MMA gave an introductory class of Self Defense to some of the students. He demonstrated basic tactics that did not require a lot of strength...or any strength for that matter. The only thing you needed to know was what do if you find yourself in a situation where you are approached by an attacker.
The students found it very interesting to see some of the simple moves you could do to disarm a gunned assailant. For the women this was even more impressive to see how they could over power a man. Simple techniques that only required body mechanics and knowledge of how to control joints to your favour. Along with the students, Taryn Bester from Miss2Beesy also attended this class.
Here's what some of the students had to say about it.
