Members of the Gold Coast Chito-Ryu Karate Dojo took advantage of the opportunity to learn some basic self-defence techniques from the ground in a special seminar on Friday. The seminar was led by Adam Glachan, a blue belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and covered what to do when caught in common positions on the ground. The primary emphasis was on how to escape and get back to your feet safely which was a very valuable lesson especially for the young girls in attendance. We also covered some attacking techniques from the ground including arm-locks and chokes.
The seminar was very enjoyable and everyone walked away with a little more confidence with what they could do if they ever found themselves in a dangerous position on the ground.
Thank you to Adam for sharing his knowledge.
