At Allstars Martial Arts we teach all our students how to defend them selves in many different ways. One way is protection from an attacker using self defence. If a person practises on a daily, weekly, monthly basis the self defence techniques this could potentially be life saving and injury prevention.
What is self defence? Wikipedia says – In the criminal law of Australia, self-defence is a legal defence to a charge of causing injury or death in defence of the person or, to a limited extent, property, or a partial defence to murder if the degree of force used was excessive.
When can you use self defence? Most of us will fortunately go through life without being a victim of a criminal assault committed either against our personal selves, or our property. However, there will also be a significant number of people who will unfortunately face a situation where there is an attempt by another party to inflict personal harm, or to injure property. The law recognises that in such instances, self preservation of either the self or the property is allowed, making way for the defence of self-defence.
What type of self defence does Allstars Martial Arts have? The self defence is a massive component of the Allstars cirriculum. The self defence techniques are incorporated into our Kata, Nihunchin, Sunchin, Tensho, Seinchin, Saifa, Sunseru and lots more kata’s. The basic types of self defence taught to all students start at single wrist grabs where we teach children, teens & adults how to defend them selves against an attacker who grabs your hand or wrist in an attack on a person. By using this simple self defence technique this could help anyone to protect them against someone wanting to be aggressive towards another person or even worse hurt them or even become a life threatening moment. All in all from White belt to Black Belt there are 16 self defence techniques taught in our classes. Allstars encourage all our students to think of their own personal self defence responses in order to help understand and add on on modify the nominated responses given that each situation that may arise from an attacker would be so different.
What constitutes self-defence? The term ‘self-defence’ may imply that it is only available when the person is under threat themselves, but in actual fact, it can also be used in the defence of another. Traditionally speaking under the common law, self-defence of another was usually reserved for relationships that fell into the category of child and parent, wife and husband, or ‘master and servant’. However, the position may have changed, and many jurisdictions in Australia allow for a person to use force in defence of another such as s 418(2)(a) of the Crimes Act 1900 (NSW) or s 9AC, s9AE(a) of the Crimes Act 1958 (VIC) for example.
