Chil­dren build char­ac­ter via self-de­fence

Pilbara News - - Sport - Mick Ge­orge

The sec­ond gen­er­a­tion of Rene­gade Kar­ratha mar­tial arts school stu­dents have been graded, hav­ing learnt new skills in self-de­fence and anti-bully mea­sures.

This year, Rene­gade Kar­ratha ex­panded its club to in­clude spe­cific train­ing for chil­dren. Their an­tibully class is a school term-based pro­gram, which looks to de­velop and en­hance chil­dren’s char­ac­ter, through the medium of self­de­fence.

What is unique about the an­tibul­ly­ing pro­gram is that it doesn’t teach chil­dren any of­fen­sive fight­ing tech­niques, such as kick­ing or punch­ing. In­stead it teaches them con­flict min­imi­sa­tion and com­mu­ni­ca­tion skills, as well as self­de­fence-based tech­niques.

The club will be con­tin­u­ing with the pro­gram in Term 3, tak­ing an­other in­take of stu­dents, start­ing week 1 of the new school term.
