The workshops will be led by Ric Vargas, a highly acclaimed instructor who was awarded the, Outstanding Martial Artist of the Year under the International Martial Arts Council of America in 2013. Ric founded the Jeet Kune Do (JKD) School, which teaches and practices the ability to overcome any obstacle, no matter how big or small. In line with Ric’s philosophies, these workshops promote “the art of fight without fighting”. Participants do not need to have any martial arts or self-defence experience, which makes the session fun, easy an accessible to all. Basic self-defence moves and techniques will leave participants feeling stronger and empowered. Ric says of these sessions: “The purpose will be to help people recognise and avoid dangerous situations and how to intercept and opponent’s intentions as quickly and efficiently as possible”.
