Seminar – Childrens’ Self Protection at P.U.M.A .Camp
Body Language – Body Language informs the largest percentage of our communication. By looking at how we stand, walk and present ourselves to others, we can see how others may perceive us.
Understanding Bullying, and what to do about it – During this part of the course we look at what bullying looks and feels like. We examine the effects of bullying and give practical ideas about how to counter these effects.
Adrenaline and its effects – We look at the way fear causes the body to produce adrenaline, what that feels like and what we can do about it.
Safe Distances and Awareness – This section deals with the two arms length/four arms length rule.
Find your inner strength – Pad-work – During the pad-work section we gently encourage all the children to find their courage and their voice.
Portal of safety – A fun game to allow all the children to experience what has been taught on the course so far.
Cyberbullying – This section is aimed at the older group and deals with specific issues arising from texting and the Internet.
David Pixton V - Locks and Takedowns
Hello I’m Dave Pixton, I have been training in Taekwondo since 1988 and have been a black belt for 24 years. I have represent England at international competition and won 5 x world championship medals in Sparring, Patterns, Power Breaking and Special Technique.
I have a passion for all martial arts and have trained lots of other styles including Judo (black belt), Thai Boxing, Freestyle and Greco Roman Wrestling, Brazilian Jiujitsu (BJJ – blue belt), Silat, Escrima, Wing Chun, Akido. I like to say I am a student of Martial Arts, Taekwondo is my best subject.
Seminar – Principles of Locks and Takedowns
At this years summer camp I will be hoping to share some of my diverse knowledge with you. I will be teaching a session on the Sunday afternoon (subject to schedule!) and we will look at some of the basic principles of locks and takedowns. I will do this using some structured principle based approach and a fair amount of practical work.
The session itself is aimed at being as much a mental exercise as physical so for those who are new to this subject do not worry about being physically exhausted at the end of the class. By the end of the session my aim is to give you a basic understanding of the mechanics behind locking and takedown techniques and how we might consider applying them to some of them in both a self defence situation and to some of our more free-style set-sparring type exercises.
I look forward to seeing you on camp
