Last month I was a speaker at The Athena Network Singapore’s Cappuccino Connections event. I shared about my recent trip to London where I met Queen Elizabeth II and received the Queen’s Young Leaders Award.

As the CEO of Kapap Academy, an Israeli hand-to-hand combat instructor and a certified Executive Bodyguard, I have trained thousands of people in self-defence, including vulnerable groups such as abused women, domestic helpers, the physically challenged and the elderly.

I shared my personal journey from an anorexic victim to the recipient of the Queen’s Young Leaders Award. And about how I challenged the traditional roles associated with gender, breaking boundaries and redefining what empowerment means to people.

I also gave a short demonstration of a simple but effective self-defence technique that all women should know: how to get out of a single hand choke.

It is really easy to get out of a single hand choke defence if you know what to do.

1. Use the opposite hand relative to the choking arm and pin the choking hand against your chest with your palm

2. Grab any one of the fingers by the fingertips

3. Envelope your entire hand around that one finger

4. Whilst keeping the attacker’s hand still pinned to your chest, bend the finger
backwards and move your body away from the attacker’s free hand

5. You can either snap the finger quickly and make your getaway or maintain the same tension on the finger to bring the guy down to his knees

From there you can further use a set of control and restraint techniques to restrain him

Here is some background on our system called Modern Street Combatives:

Modern Street Combatives is an eclectic self-defence system that comprises of Kapap, American Catch Wrestling, Dynamic Combat Method, Chin Na and several systems like Savate, Traditional TKD, Wing Chun etc.

In essence, Modern Street Combatives combine knowledge of Bodyguarding/Personal Protection concepts and principles with a scientific understanding of the human body based on biomechanics and the laws of physics.

In addition, it incorporates the use of psychology to help mentally prepare its students for real world violence and predatorial behaviour. This is a system that is for everyone and anyone, no pre-requisites necessary.
