„I do not give up“ – this years` traditional Women self-defense workshop had this motto, organized by the School of classical Japanese martial arts Bujinkan Macedonia.
This year, the event took place in the Hombu Dojo of Taiyou e no Michi, and around ten girls participated, who during two two days were restlessly learning the techniques for self-defense in a situation when the attacker will tumble the victim to the ground.
During the Workshop, instructor Igor Dovezenski tried to show the situation of an attack at the closest perspective, and at the same time to point out the most important parts of the act for a successful defense. He dedicated enough time to the mental preparation too, which is needed to face the villain, constantly giving the participants various scenarios for attacks that happen as an attempt of rape or street violence.
Apart from the exhausting training, the free time was used for hanging out in front of the fireplace in the dojo, as well as for taking walks to the beautiful nature in the valley of the mountain Lipac.
At the end, the girls with great sadness accepted the fact that the Workshop was over and to the following one they will have to wait a whole year.
