Especially in Singapore, it does not seem like learning self-defence is a necessary skill to possess. However, the statistics are glaring in our faces. In 2015, the rate of women being raped in Singapore alone was 4 rapes every 9 days as reported by The New Paper. And this has been on the rise since 2013. Moreover, there are more cases reported in the news about murder victims being killed by their spouses or even their parent.
Therefore, it is increasingly important to learn how to defend yourself in a life-death situation. Which is why Zackiee of U-Elite is so passionate about teaching women the basics of self-defence.
Through his experience as a police officer and even as a self-defence coach, he has seen many cases where the victim could’ve survived had he or she learnt the proper way to defend themselves.
That is why Zackiee will be conducting a special workshop during our inaugural Wellness Day Out to teach women some basic techniques on self-defence! Check out the video above where you can see some of the basic moves you’ll learn during the workshop on the 24th June and the best part about it all is that you get a bit of a cardio workout while developing a useful life skill!
