One aspect of our mission at Naga is to reach out into the broader community. Over the years, many companies have invited us onsite to teach self-defense, de-escalation and empowerment techniques to their teams. These courses focus on basic skills and information with end goals of awareness, confidence, prevention and practical application.
Here is what Dalton Management had to say about our class:
Naga Martial Arts | Self Defense | Community taught an amazing personalized self-defense class to 35 people in our Property Management Company. Mas Goeroe Silvia Smart, 6th degree black belt, met with our Safety Committee ahead of time to learn what was important to the group and then built the self-defense class around those ideas.
In property management we are often in situations where we are alone with people we don’t know in empty apartments or working alone in offices. It was helpful to have a class geared specifically towards dealing with these scenarios as well as tools that our team can use in other areas of their lives. Silvia Smart gave us positive, encouraging instruction while boosting our self-confidence.
Our group ranges in age from 26 years old to 65 years old with varying degrees of physical limitations and disabilities. Some people were nervous about practicing in front of co-workers and concerned about their physical abilities, but quickly warmed up to the relaxing atmosphere Silvia created. She encouraged questions and participation and led the class in a way that kept the team interested and involved. It didn’t take too long before people were firing off questions and getting excited to participate in the training. As a supervisor, it was great to have the entire team in one room without having to isolate certain people by physical ability.
In the end we had an incredible instruction session and a memorable team building experience. Silvia is already working with us to help build on the class for next year.
I am thankful for Naga and the instruction Silvia provided to our company.
