Women’s Self-Defence, Grabbed From Behind

Here’s a video shot at Intersections Media Opportunities for Youth Society. ‘Intersections’ is a non-profit charitable organization founded by the late William Vince (“Bill”), an Oscar-nominated Vancouver film-maker and advocate for youth at risk. Their program offers an employability and life skills workshop and work experience opportunity to youth facing multiple barriers to employment.

I volunteer at Intersections, giving talks on health and fitness, and they were kind enough to shoot this short video on one scenario women may face when attacked.

In this video, I demonstrate why some commonly taught techniques do not work outside the cooperative training environment, and how with Wing Tsun Kung Fu’s systematic approach, women can have a much better chance at realistically defending themselves, rendering their attacker immobile, and then escaping the situation!
