Learn Martial Arts for Protection - PH

PhotoHunt theme : Protect(ion)

A group of ladies gathered at Fort Canning Park to learn martial arts. Ladies need to know how to protect themselves when attacked.

Lady instructor showing her deadly moves... don't mess with her. :P

  2. This is a fun theme, I'm beginning to enjoy it. With interpretations like this that are so in the mark, people can entertain us with their posts.

    I really like yours. I didn't think about this.

  3. I agree, this is a great theme! And yours is perfect for it. Love when ladies can protect themselves!

  4. Hey, I remember you had attended this some time ago. I should try to learn self-defence soon. Most of the time, I am usually travelling on my own.

    Is there any short self-defence course that you would recommend?

  5. Oh I really want to learn Karate. Since i was in elementary I like to watch a karate movie and learn about it. My brother, uncles, and my father knows about karate not myself...Nice take my friend. Mine will be posted later...

  7. Very cool idea -- not just your photo choice but also self-defense classes for women.

  8. learning self defense is good, not only to be able to protect ourselves when the need arise (but hopefully not), it is good exercise and a way to socialise with other like minded people.

  14. Learning martial arts for protection is good not only for ladies but also for men. of course, nowadays, once the criminals start taking out the gun, you can forget about your martial art skills! LOL!

    Oh, having martial arts skills is good when we go on solo travel : )

  16. Thanks Photo Cache.

    I had planned to take pictures of me bashing my guys after the martial arts session, but the guys won't co-operate. :D

    No guy wants to be beaten by a girl.

  17. Annie,
    Ladies need to protect themselves in this wild and crazy world. :)

  18. Dwacon,
    It's very difficult to buy a gun in Singapore. Possession of a gun can get one charged.

  19. oceanskies,
    Yes, I attended this a few months back. Vincent Ng was one of the instructors.

    I can give you Vincent's martial arts school if you want to learn.

  20. gengen,
    I cannot imagine myself taking up karate. I would be thrown all the time. :D

    At my age, I would learn Tai Chi. :)

  21. Julie,
    The moves are not so difficult and it's amazing what they can do to your assailants. It's a useful course.

  22. YTSL,
    Self-defence is important to any man or woman. At least I learnt some basics. I don't wish to put them to use though. :)

  23. Lina,
    It's cool to know kungfu. The lady instructor in the picture is so impressive when she showed her moves. Her hits were fast and accurate!

  24. ian,
    haha.... don't worry. I won't be using it as I have 4 guys accompanying me this weekend.

  25. Hello Ems!
    Long time no see!
    Nice to have you back. :)

  26. Ebie,
    That's one of the instructors, Felix. He looks better than Jackie Chan. :)

    Watching him display his fighting skills makes us girls dropped our jaws! haha....

  27. Life Ramblings,
    My son and hubby took up martial arts but not me. I pretend I'm too dainty. haha....

    I should go for lessons, to keep fit.

  28. Blur Mummy,
    You should get your girl to learn. :)

    In Singapore, it is not easy for people or any crook to get hold of a gun.

    I can't say that about some other countries. Having some knowledge of self-defense definitely helps when travelling solo!

  31. Buzzing J,
    Want to see me getting chopped? :D

    It's not karate, it's kungfu! hehe...

    ReplyDelete
  32. Was the kungfu-learning session fun? :D

    ReplyDelete
  33. Eastcoastlife,
    Women need to learn kongfu to prepare for the worst situation.
    Please do not bully hushand with no martial art.

    ReplyDelete
  34. It makes me happy to see women taking charge and learning how to stay safe!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Great take on the theme ECL! I think all women should know some martial arts.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Gosh! That is FIERCE! Haha.. I am sure won't mess with her!

    ReplyDelete
  37. So did you pick up any of those hee-haaaaaa moves to fend off those "hum siap los"? :P

    ReplyDelete
  38. there are times when I wanted to give Zaini a back kick! LOL

    But I think he'll just tickle me to death if I did that to him whenever I got pissed at him. XD

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
