Under supervision from head coach Sensei Mike Priestley, our recently graded brown belts Jenna and Olivia ran a self-defence workshop in Dronfield, at the 2nd Baptist Dronfield Guides.
Techniques taught on the evening included:
- Demonstrating striking points and how they affect an attacker.
- Pad work to practise various strikes using different parts of the body including, feet, knees, elbows and fists.
- Defence against a grab, and a grab and punch.
- Defence against holds and strangles from both rear and front attacks.
The guides did a great job and asked lots of questions and were very energetic! At the end of the session the okami demo team were presented with a box of Cadbury’s Heroes for their efforts.
