Earlier this year, team member Rick Chong facilitated a series of self protection workshop to help raise funds for CASD-Australia . The workshop was geared towards real world application based on fundamental Krav Maga techniques.
Krav Maga (/krɑːv məˈɡɑː/; Hebrew: קְרַב מַגָּע [ˈkʁav maˈɡa], lit. “contact-combat”) is a self-defense system developed for the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) that consists of a wide combination of techniques sourced from aikido, judo, muay thai, boxing, savate and wrestling, along with realistic fight training.
Rick is a qualified Wingate Institute Krav Maga Practical instructor. Wingate institute is an Israeli government body with an equal standing as our own AIS (Australian Institute of Sports). During the 6 weeks period, we touched on the fundamentals of self defence, fight psychology, predator mindset and behaviour, body language and posture, prefight interview and weapons of opportunity.
This is was a donation based event, and managed to raise over $AUD500. Great work and thank you everyone who participated and donated to this event.
