Transitional Year Silat Self Defence Course                                                                                                                            The emphasis of this course is not to teach students how to fight, but, instead to give good practical and realistic training and advice on what a student can do to protect themselves, if they were to become a victim of crime. This is done by Firstly by teaching Awareness & Prevention to avoid attacks happening in first place. Secondly learning How to Escape and, learning the basic Self Defence Techniques, for most common form of attacks.                                                       

We also cover the emotional and practical realities of dealing with the aftermath of an attack.

At the end of each class we offer the students an opportunity for Questions and Answers, so we then can tailor the direction of the course to the needs of the students.

To help deal with the physical aspects, all students will get a cardio workout usually a mix of Pad Work, Stretching, Self Defence Drills, Breathing Exercises and Yoga Postures. The degree of cardio workout can be increased or decreased to fit in with the wishes of the class teacher.

This course can be divided into either 4, 6 or 8 weeks or longer programmes if required, or it can taught through a 4 Hour Workshop. The course can be personally tailored to an All Boy or All Girl Class or a Mixed Class and each lesson can be worked within the time limitations for each class, at each school.
