A 10-minute summary of the presentation I had offered online to the Chinese community of South Africa. Due to the spread of the Coronavirus pandemic across the globe, unfortunately, so has the rise in negative stereotyping and racist behavior towards ALL people of Asian decent. From mainstream news to social media comments and memes, the anti-Chinese sentiment seems to be growing. My concern was that it would (and it has) eventually spill violently into the physical realm.
It was because of this that I had decided to offer my knowledge in self-defence to our community. My methodology of self-defence is a mixture of both theory and practical. As I explained to one participant, a violent defence is not always the answer, but necessary when you are being violently attacked. There are however, 5 other self-defence "ACTIONS" that you could use in response to a self-defence emergency. Most people are only aware of the "fight or flight" response.
Finally, by hosting this on YouTube, I offer it freely to the rest world, regardless as to whether the viewers are of Asian decent or not.
As you have realised, CRIME is something that affects ALL of us regardless of race, nationality, age, gender, sexuality or geography!
As the late Bruce Lee said, "...Under the sky, under the heavens, there is but one family. It just so happens, people are different."
