AN invigorating self-defence program for women and girls aged six years and up has made its way to Bellerive.
The program – called ‘Undefeatd. No Excuses! No Regrets!’ – is about being the best person you can be and preparing girls to have a strong mindset.
There will be an open day on Monday 24 June for interested students to come along and participate in a free lesson.
Program coordinator Nicola Francic (or Miss Nici) specialises in teaching the practical, fun and invigorating self-defence program.
“I want to give your daughter the strength, courage and power to celebrate those great times in life, and provide her with the skills required to keep safe and live a happy and healthy life,” Miss Nici said.
The type of self-defence taught is Wing Chun Kung Fu, which is perfect for girls as it doesn’t rely on physical strength.
There are more than 700 different types of Wing Chun in the world and the one being offered in Bellerive is for girls ages six to 12 years.
It is a modern self defence system created by Miss Nici, who has more than 20 years’ martial arts and teaching experience.
She is a master level in Wing Chun Kung Fu.
Classes for teenage girls and women will be available soon.
Miss Nici said she was taking self-defence to a new modern era with all the traditional values that martial arts had offered in the past, just with a practical and fun flair.
“To help promote group cohesion, the girls will have a uniform for formality and consistency,” she said.
“They will learn self-defence techniques, respect for oneself and others, drills to improve coordination and reflexes and activities for fitness and cooperation.
“I understand the importance of quality teaching and there will be a maximum of 12 students per class.”
The open day will be held on Monday 24 June at St Mark’s Hall (opposite Salamanca Fresh) in Bellerive from 4.15pm to 5pm.
