8 Week Self Defense Course for Women – Starts 18 February 2019

Learn the most important techniques to defend yourself against threat and escape an attacker.

This course will focus on repeated drills to make these techniques second nature, so your instincts just kick-in when you most need them, keeping you safe.

Leo Ming will be hosting another of his self defense courses – this time for women only, commencing on Monday 18th February.  Lessons will be for one hour, once per week, for 8 consecutive weeks.

The course is designed for women to be able to:

  • spot potential danger and threats
  • empower themselves to deal with threat and danger
  • know the target points of the body
  • practice practical street wise techniques
  • develop a muscle memory for the techniques so they become second nature, and instinctual when most needed.

Because this course focuses on ingraining the techniques, participants are encouraged to commit to the full 8 week course and not skip a session!

This retreat is tailored for the students who participate, and so will be for all levels of tai chi, from beginners to advanced.  The focus is on foundation building, on key concepts in tai chi, and on technique.  From this base Leo builds to the level of the group, including:

  • Beginners will get a strong foundation, further getting in touch with themselves and their bodies. Their  left and right hand co-ordination improves; developing more neural muscular signals and helping integrate mind and body.
  • Those with injuries, scoliosis, arthritic conditions will benefit from this retreat for therapeutic reasons, and learning the useful exercises.
  • And those more advanced in taiji, will improve their body alignment, perfect the foundation skills, aligning their technique with the correct breathing, and will gain refinement of their taiji moves, both mentally and physically.

Date:  Friday 29 March night to Sunday 31 March afternoon 
Venue: Melody Hill in Magaliesburg
Cost: R2350 – payment upfront by 16th February confirms your place
