Introduction to Practical Self–defence
This seminar will cover the four principles of Peacock Kung Fu as listed above. We will do some role play to practice developing awareness. There will be training in how to judge distancing and the use of five postures in order to manage distance if an antagonist is attempting to close on you. You will learn one simple posture which can be used to neutralise common attacks.
We will also explore breaking away from a dangerous situation and how to push someone out of your space. We will also look at what to do if you find yourself on the floor during a confrontation, not a good place to be, but there are effective ways to respond.
