Give it a Go - For Uni of Shef students only
Wear sportswear and suitable shoes. Bring water
This course will give a solid introduction to the concepts of self-defence including: psychology, situational awareness, avoiding confrontation, defusing confrontation and the actual physical act of defending yourself. Over the five weeks you will learn basic blocking techniques, defences to common grabs and strangles, how to effectively strike your opponents as well as vulnerable points to attack when in trouble. To supplement this, some basic combat anatomy will be discussed, enabling you to learn locks and pins to overpower people much stronger than yourself. This will culminate in a practical exam that will test and prove your knowledge. Should you pass, you will be issued with an award certificate and HEAR (if applicable).
Wear sportswear and trainers. Bring water. An electronic certificate will be given for full attendance.
