‘Rise of the Phoenix’ An empowerment session on self defense techniques

Life can be unpredictable and uncertain and they say it’s always better to be safe and prepared than to be sorry. Basic self-defense training can give one the ability to take care of oneself in dangerous situations or help us respond quickly and effectively to threats. It also inspires us to respond from a place of strength rather than a victim mindset.

On the 5th of July, our school organized a session in self-defence training for our senior girls. The objective of this session was to create awareness among girls and enhance their inner strength by orienting them about different self-defense techniques that will help them be more confident and empowered to deal with adverse and unexpected situations life may throw at them.

The founder of REACT Academy, Master Nischal, who has more than 28 years of experience in martial arts, a black belt in Judo, Jujutsu and Karate and is also the official consultant for Telangana State Police lead the session.

The Session was highly interactive, energetic and light hearted in nature. Students of Grades X to XII were quite engaged with the session modules and actively followed the instructor’s steps. Master Nischal and his team demonstrated ingenious and natural steps which were demonstrated to help in self defense. The girls practiced and were able to demonstrate techniques whenever required. These tactics are practical and very effective in their nature and application.

The instructors also guided our girls to take preventive measures to be safe in new places with new people and equipped them to analyze threats in any circumstances. The session was quite effective and really inspired our students to be confident.
