Fighting Fit

What better way to bond then to headlock your work colleague!

Two weeks ago, the S&SC team broke a sweat learning self-defence. George from Grapple 858 Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu put the team through their paces, generously sharing his wisdom and providing our S&SC champions with the confidence to protect themselves. Hopefully, this never need be called into action! Although a serious topic, the S&SC team had a great day, learning new techniques and then trying them out on their colleagues, giving us plenty of laughs along the way. Such a great way to spend an afternoon, it brought us all closer together as a team, it gave us the chance to enact potential real-life scenarios in a controlled environment, and it showed us just how strong and fighting fit our bodies really are.

The legend that is Bruce Lee said, 'More and more I believe in the fact that you have two hands and two legs, and the thing is how to make good use of yourself - and that's about it. There is only one basic principle of self-defence: you must apply the most effective weapon, as soon as possible, to the most vulnerable target.'

Wiser words have never been spoken. An invaluable experience for the team. Our photos provide a snapshot of our afternoon and please feel free to ask us about it next time you are in the clinic.
