Event description
The ability to defend yourself is one of the most important skills a person should have.

About this event

*** Wellbeing Day Out – Activity 12.00noon – Held in Church ***

This is a no-nonsense practical self-defense class taught by qualified instructors. John Brotchie has had over 45 years of teaching unarmed combat and self-defense to women in the UK and New Zealand.

It is all about how to be aware of dangerous situations as well as fast techniques to get rid of attackers and using the most reliable moves that do not involve too much knowledge. It covers ways to repel attacks without always being aggressive as it always better to pour water on the fire, not oil.

The seminar will be an introduction on how to use simple vocal and physical techniques to build confidence and take away the fear of attack. We will cover standing and ground work and will allow all students to practice these moves on each other in a fun, non-threatening atmosphere.

Mania Gym is a Women's Sportfighting Club that welcomes women of all ages and fitness levels looking to improve their skills and fitness, and learning to fight in a friendly, fun environment.

Please bring comfortable clothes; barefoot is best so please wear shoes that are easy to slip off (with non-marking soles).

This is a Free Activity. However capacity is limited, and hence we do require people to reserve their place with a free ticket from eventbrite. We will also use eventbrite to send you workshop reminders and advise you of any changing circumstances or changing requirements due to COVID-19 etc (including cancellation). If you find that you are unable to attend, please cancel your ticket so that someone else on the waitlist won't miss out. Thank you!

*****

Wellbeing Day Out is organised by Mt Eden Rotary and sponsored by the Albert-Eden Local Board (and Albert-Eden Neighbourhood Arts).

*****

Wellbeing Day Out Will Only Proceed At Venue Under ALERT LEVEL 1. For Mt Eden Rotary, the Event Organiser, the health, safety, and wellbeing of our community is our number one priority. We recognise that Events could be a transmission risk if COVID-19 community transmission re-emerges. We also recognise that alert level changes can occur with very short notice. Therefore, for your planning purposes, please note that we will ONLY proceed with the WELLBEING DAY OUT event on a physical face-to-face basis at the Mt Eden Village Centre under ALERT LEVEL 1.

*****

Alert Level 1 Best Practice Risk Management for the Health of Attendees. At Alert Level 1, we need to be ready in case COVID-19 reappears in our community. We will clean frequently touched surfaces with an appropriate cleaning solution to reduce transmission of germs in general. For your part, please:

1. Stay home if you are sick.

2. Register on entry via the NZ COVID Tracer App or via our manual registers.

3. Follow basic hygiene measures, ie, good hand hygiene (wash your hands with soap for 20 seconds and then dry thoroughly OR use the hand sanitiser which we will provide), good cough and sneeze etiquette (cough or sneeze into the crook of your elbow OR into a tissue which you dispose of in a bin and then clean your hands), avoid touching your face (clean your hands before touching your face) AND practice physical distancing (when physical distancing isn’t a requirement, you can still play it safe by continuing to keep a distance from people you do not know - use your judgement).

Thank you.
