Event Details

Free to attend! DM privately to confirm your reservation! Just 3 minutes from Frankfurter Allee station, join a free (donations welcome) seminar to learn simple, practical self-defence techniques to survive the streets!

Protect yourself at all times. Feel safer, more confident… learn to neutralise your attacker, and take control of the situation! Men and all genders welcome!

Confirm your attendance with a direct message to Island Wing Chun Berlin with your name and we’ll confirm your place if there is space still available! The class fills up quickly and space is limited to reserve early!

Right here in Berlin is your chance to attend a seminar that will give you confidence and make you feel safer wherever you go! Increase your awareness, learn simple, effective techniques to defend your person and never feel nervous or afraid again, only relaxed and self-aware. INCLUDED: How to defend yourself from a social distance!

This seminar will be taught in the Dojo, all corona restrictions are adhered to. Indoor shoes please and masks for entering the building!

The Island system of self-defence is rooted in instructor Oliver Sotra’s 17 years of Wing Chun Kung Fu training with some the world’s most respected and renowned masters. Years of living in rough cities and endless hours of meditation, study and practice mean that you will learn very quickly and efficiently something that is the culmination of a long line of knowledge, passed down through generations and refined on the streets of Hong Kong, Los Angeles, Athens and Belgrade.

The aim of this seminar is to share knowledge with people in a spirit of giving that will sow the seeds of learning, as it was given to us, and so it is passed on.

This is a tolerant space. All people of all races, genders, skill levels, creed, colour or orientation are welcome, and absolutely no discrimination of any kind will be tolerated. True power stems from peace, tolerance and fairness. However you will be taught to treat any attacker very UNfairly indeed!

At this seminar you will be introduced to the rudiments of Wing Chun Kung Fu. A hand to hand combat system based on the fundamental principles of centre line (keeping ones own protected and attacking your opponents), balance, and guard. You will be instructed in several of the most effective and accessible self defence techniques:

1) How to avoid confrontation
2) How to disable an opponent no matter their size by taking out their balance centres, and vulnerable zones
3) How to strike with the maximum amount of momentum and power the human body is capable of generating
4) How to be dirty, ‘cheap’, and win. There is no ‘fairness’ on the street
5) How to use your surroundings to your advantage

No smoking, drugs (including marijuana), alcohol, or any other form of inebriation will be accepted.

Please come showered, clean, and in loose, comfortable clothing. A clean change of indoor training shoe is recommended.

No food and only water allowed.
