19th July: Safety and Security being the key issue in today’s world, self defence mechanisms have become extremely essential and thus Stella Maris College initiated the first self-defence workshop in campus for its students. This workshop was conducted by Mr.Davis Thomas a well-known mentor, specialised in karate, who works with Budokai. The session was held at the OAT from 9:45am to 10:05am and it engaged students in identifying exercises and postures that strengthened the core segments of the body. Mr.Davis also taught techniques to escape forceful hand clutching with appropriate insight into the direction of force that had to be applied. A twenty–minute interaction with Mr. Davis revealed to be significant for the students. This workshop has been scheduled to be conducted for a week.
