Gary Stringer, Reality Based Self Defence Seminar, October 2008
For the October Bank Holiday Weekend, the Warrior Martial Arts Studio at the F1 Fitness Centre, Clonakilty, was the venue for a 2-day Reality-Based Self Defence Seminar. The seminar, which covered realistic street confrontations including defences against knives and defences from the ground, was delivered by instructors of Stringer Ju Ka Do UK.
Day 1 consisted of a confined session for instructors, while day 2 was open to both instructors and students. The Warrior Tae Kwon Do students and instructors were guided through the thorough and practical self defence drills by instructors Gary Stringer 8th dan, Kevin Stringer 5th dan and Paul Tarbuck 3rd dan, as well as Roger Adams – owner of F1 Fitness Centre and long-time friend and student of Mr Stringer.
All attendees thoroughly enjoyed the experience, not only due to the effectiveness of the techniques, but also the friendly and fun atmosphere which the instructors promoted throughout. Plans are already being made by Warrior Tae Kwon Do to arrange a repeat visit by the Ju Ka Do instructors.
