Keeping in view the rising rate of crime against women in Delhi/ NCR, HT City is running a campaign “ Safe in the City” to empower the women with safety tips and self defense techniques on how to face and fight an attacker.
As part of the campaign, Ht City conducted a Self Defense Workshop for the women employees and female students of Amity University on April 11, 2012 at F 1 Seminar Hall, Amity Campus, Sector-125, Noida.
The workshop saw the overwhelming participation of over 50 faculty members, staff and students. The trainers, Mr. Shamik and Ms. Ankita Ankur taught and demonstrated combative and self defense techniques of Krav Maga to the participants. Krav Maga is a noncompetitive eclectic self-defense system developed in Israel that involves striking techniques, wrestling and grappling.
The participants were divided into groups and very lucidly explained how attacks should be aimed towards the most vulnerable parts of the body of the attacker including face, jaw neck, knee, etc. Participants were taught to respond to the attacks in the quickest and most efficient way by using the nearest tool available for the attack ie using the limb closest to the attacker at the time.
The participants learnt defenses against take-downs, chokes, bear-hugs, arm bars, and other possible attacks and also how to defend themselves against various weapons such as knives.
The workshop was very interactive and enriching. All the participants earnestly thanked HT City and trainers for bracing them with the practical know how of self defense and its myriad techniques.
