Nerang is a suburb with two contrasting faces: one shows quiet, green streets and areas where you can go for picnics, boating and fishing near the beautiful Nerang river; the other is an outer suburb that is loud with people, speeding cars and big motorbikes.
It’s a scene some say is not safe for children and women.
But regardless of how safe you think your place is, wouldn’t you feel much safer to know you can defend yourself when the need arises?
Shape-up with short bursts of intense exercise
In order to be capable of defending yourself, being fit is the first thing you need to be. If you don’t have a lot of time to spare but want to shape-up, you can try doing HIIT or High Intensity Interval Training.
One of the most time-efficient ways to work out, HIIT involves alternating short bursts of intense exercise with low-intensity recovery period. Despite ranging from just 10 to 30 minutes, you can get twice as much health benefits from HIIT as you would a moderate exercise.
You can join our Nerang HIIT training classes and with the assistance of qualified instructors, we will teach you our top 10 HIIT moves (and more):
- Hand-release push-ups
- Plyo push-ups
- Russian twists
- Single-leg burpees
- Superman with lateral raises
- Lateral lunges with hops
- Mountain climber
- Plank jacks
- Squat thrusts
Learn practical self-defence moves
No one wants to be caught in a situation where you have to use reasonable force to defend yourself.
But in case you do find yourself in that position, knowing exactly what to do is definitely an advantage. It’s your countermeasure against unprovoked attacks that endanger not just your life, but also your family and property.
We will teach you what to do in situations like those in our Nerang self-defence classes, the different ways to respond, and other practical techniques and tips you can use. All these will increase your chances of survival in an encounter. You will also learn:
- How to position yourself when being attacked
- How to block attacks
- Other defensive measures you can utilise
- How to break free from a hold or choke
- The different kinds of strikes and the appropriate one to use in different scenarios
- How and where to strike back
Take it a notch higher with our karate and kickboxing classes
Some people are asking, isn’t self-defence and martial arts the same? This is a bit hard to explain, but the truth is they are the same yet completely different.
Self-defence is about skills you can quickly learn in order to deal with violence, assault or harassment. Martial arts focus on awareness, spirituality, respect, and self-discipline. Its long term pursuit is that of physical and mental excellence.
Training for the two is different, but the moves are essentially the same. To get outstanding results, it’s best to get a self-defence program that transition into a martial art.
