In­ter­na­tional self-de­fence ex­pert vis­its

The Gazette (Derwent Valley) - - NEWS - SHAUN Mc­MANUS

AN in­ter­na­tion­ally-renowned Krav Maga in­struc­tor vis­ited the Der­went Val­ley to teach teach­ers ev­ery­thing he knows.

Head of the In­ter­na­tional Krav Maga Fed­er­a­tion’s Women’s Di­vi­sion, Shlomi Moyal, of Is­rael, was at the Der­went Val­ley PCYC from last week, help­ing in­struc­tors from across Aus­tralia hone their self-de­fence skills.

Part of the IKMF’s Global In­struc­tor Team, Mr Moyal also hosted a women-only self de­fence sem­i­nar.

Tas­ma­nian IKMF in­struc­tor and Der­went Val­ley lo­cal Chris Lobb, who teaches Krav Maga at the PCYC, said it was a “unique” op­por­tu­nity to have Mr Moyal in the state.

“For us, it’s a great op­por­tu­nity to get a num­ber of in­struc­tors down here, there’s 12 in­struc­tors all up do­ing the course,” Mr Lobb said.

“To have an in­struc­tor of Shlomi’s cal­i­bre, it’s not hap­pened here be­fore.”
