Kickboxing and Self Defence

For the last two weeks, the students of St. Joseph’s College, Borrisoleigh, participated in a kickboxing and self-defence workshop and learned the basics of kickboxing moves. They were also shown how to get out of danger if attacked, from behind or head-on. 

The trick is usually to go against your first instinct to pull away and instead stay calm and think about your predicament. Learning how to dodge a box was also covered as students learned the correct stance to take. 

Overall, everyone seemed to enjoy themselves and are looking forward to another workshop.
