Report
2nd Self Defence and Violence Prevention Training with William Schneider

Date: 09/29 - 10/01/2011 (Thursday 4pm - 7pm, Friday 4pm - 7pm, Saturday 9am - 1pm)
Place: USZ Rosenhain
Workshop leader: Sensei William A. Schneider from France
Participants: 15 women on 3 days (Peer Leaders, migrant women from cultural associations, local network partners), Dagmar Melnizky

Workshop:
Since there were mostly new participants in this second Self defence workshop with William Schneider, exercises and techniques for beginners were shown. Only on the last day of the workshop Sensei Schneider showed some techniques for advanced participants.

At the beginning of the workshop side steps were practiced, which were followed by simple grips and techniques that help women to free themselves from violent situations.
The techniques did get more complicated during the workshop and William Schneider showed various possibilities how women can defend themselves in the case of violence. All these techniques had to be practiced again and again with the help of our local trainer, Dagmar Melnizky. This way the exercises will be memorized better and can be used in an emergency situation.

This time we organized the workshop a bit differently: we had one more time to practice on Thursday and Friday which gave us the possiblility to end around lunch time on Saturday. This proved to be much better for the participants since they could spend the rest of the Saturday with their families. At the end of the third day all the participants who took part in the training on more than one day got a certifiquate which was handed over by William Schneider.

Further Workshops:
From October 5th there will be a weekly training every Wednesday from 7.30 - 9pm in Wielandschule, Keesgasse 6, 8011 Graz with Dagmar Melnizky.

Self Defence and Violence Prevention Training with William Schneider

Date: 03/24 - 03/26/2011 (Thursday 4.20pm - 6pm, Friday 4.20pm - 6.45pm, Saturday 9.30am - 3pm)
Place: BRG Kirchengasse
Workshop leader: Sensei William A. Schneider from France
Participants: 14 Peer Leaders (on 3 days), Dagmar Melnizky, Usha Sundaresan, Ulla Martetschläger, (Emir Kuljuh)

Workshop:
After a 10 minutes warm-up each day, William Schneider showed us diverse sidesteps and defence techniques. After that we had to practice these steps and techniques in pairs, while Schneider and Melnizky watched and corrected us. The exercises and techniques were repeated each day so that even women, who came to join us on the second or third day, could follow the instructions. But Schneider also showed us new techniques and steps each day and we went through different violent situations. At the end of the Workshop we should have been able to get out of diverse situations and handholds.

Schneider pointed out that we should practice these exercises and techniques weekly, in order to automatize them and to be able to use them in case of violent behaviour.

In spite of his 75 years, William Schneider is very fit and trained and showed us the exercises with a lot of dedication and in a very funny way. The self defence method Goshin Jutsu Universel was developed by Schneider himself and it has become a very successful method.

On Saturday we had our lunch break on the schoolyard and had some time to get to know each other better. At the end of the Workshop every participant got a certificate for the participation of the Workshop which was handed over by Schneider.

Further Workshops:

  • From April 6th there will be a weekly self defence training with Dagmar Melnizky every Wednesday from 7.30pm - 9pm in Keesgasse 6.
  • From 09/29 to 10/01/2011 there will be another Workshop with Sensei William Schneider in Graz

Book and DVD:
