Having just completed a five week course in self-defence with Sev I’ve got to say how impressed I am! An excellent teacher taking you through all aspects from defence techniques to fight training to understanding the law and the healthiest way of handling any kind of assault.
Sev’s authenticity and passion about personal safety/ self defence is real. Check out her website here for courses in your area http://www.sevnecatitraining.com She’s straight down the line in explaining we need to be aware and streetwise when out and about.
London is a big place with people crossing each other’s paths and kerfuffles (and much worse) happening all the time. This course gives you the essentials in handling situations on the street in day to day life.
The realisation set in that most people are walking around without a clue about what to do if someone comes at you in the street (mugging, attack, random and even domestic violence).
The course also underlines the importance of being fit enough to handle an assault. The cardio fight training we did as well as hits and kicks on the pads were intense workouts (!).
Fitness is not just about looking ‘good’ it empowers you in day to day life, from doing the household chores with ease to defending yourself from assault on the street.
If you’re not fit you’re more vulnerable. My core belief is that movement is for everybody (whether you like it or not).
