Martial Arts for Self-Defense

Yes, it is good to know how to defend yourselves but most instructors will tell you that there is no winner when it comes to standing toe to toe with an assailant and trying to beat them. The best self defence strategy is to always escape as fast as possible and run away. What martial arts will do, is help teach you how to escape, how to break a grip, possibly disable the assailant and then get out of there! One of the key factors to your escape is confidence in the knowledge that you CAN escape.

Nhat Nam
0 Reviews
  • Self Defence
Nhất Nam is a Vietnamese martial art. Training includes stretching, self-defense, breathing exercises, acrobatics, conditioning, and traditional weapons. Nhat Nam School Philosophy Broken down, “Nhất” means unity, “Nam” means destination to the south or a favorable number 5. Sometimes Nhất Nam is translated as a young branch. As we can see, the name of the school has both direct and hidden meanings. These two meanings also lie in the attributes of the school. The culture and world-view of Vietnam is related to the ancient philosophy and religion of the Orient. Vietnamese assimilated Confucianism, Taoism, Buddhism and other philosophical systems, have also influenced the philosophy of Nhất Nam.The definition of Nhất Nam is multi-faceted. School Emblem The emblem of the school presents a snake and a rooster, fighting against each other. Traditionally a snake is a symbol of evil, darkness, passivity and instincts. And a fighting rooster means good, light, activity, striving to improve. These two origins permanently fight within us. The emblem shows, that the higher spiritual origin controls the physical origin, but does not destroy it. The fight takes place in a disk of the moon, which refers to the nonviolent methods of Nhất Nam. We know that the sun not only shines, but also burns and dries. It is a big problem in southern countries such as Vietnam. The moon shines gently, does not blind or burn. It is very important for everyone to understand himself the importance of improvement. It is impossible to develop a human character under compulsion.
