Move Like (Chuck) Norris.

11:00p.m. to 1:00a.m.
meeting point
6 Clementi Road
singapore SG

In our class, we'll be teaching you basic self-defence movements and principles that you can apply in a variety of scenarios, all of which are meant to allow for usage of leverage, timing, and technique (rather than size and strength). Do feel free to think of scenarios beforehand that you'd like us to address, and we'll do our best to answer. // Note: Physical participation will be involved. You may or may not get a little bit sweaty. But it'll be a good kind of sweat and there are shower facilities you can use if you want to wash up after. // Venue: NUS Sports & Recreation Centre Dance Studio (a clarification email for the venue will be sent nearer to the date of the class) // Attire: Anything that you'd normally wear when taking part in physical activity. You might find track/yoga/gi pants to be more comfortable than shorts. // This class is also dedicated to the late Jude Alphonsus Tan, friend of Wei'an. Jude was Wei'an's senior in Judo when he was in SJI, and Wei'an has nothing but fond memories of Jude. Jude Alphonsus Tan 14 June 1986 - 26 May 2012

About the teacher, John & Wei'an

John is a recent psychology graduate from NUS. He has dabbled in Boxing, Muay Thai, and Capoeira, but started doing Judo and Brazilian Jujitsu in NUS, which he has stuck with because they accommodate his inflexible limbs and ever-decreasing level of athleticism. Besides having quite a good memory that lets him remember random useless facts, like that a crab's blood is blue, he is pretty normal. // Wei'an is just your regular Singaporean male - was very, very chubby when young, but ever since he took up Judo and Brazilian Jujitsu, his life took a turn for the better with the new sense of discipline instilled. He plays cricket and soccer as well, but would rather be a spectator. Outside of his regular 8-6 job, he enjoys reading thrillers, listening to (most forms of) music and mimicking people (especially his mother).
