:We aim to conduct the workshop for 6-day or/and10-day self-defense workshop depending on the donor/sponsor. The intensity and rigor of these workshops will increase progressively. The participants will learn a plethora of karate blocking, punching and tackling techniques.
Physiological: Students have also reported improvements in body flexibility, shape, body control and discipline.
Psychological: Benefits of improved self-awareness, confidence and reduced anxiety.
Women/girls who attend the courses report much higher levels of confidence when it comes to leaving their homes without male chaperones. There is also an increase in their sense of empowerment.
One participant summed up the objective of the workshops, saying,
“It’s about standing up and saying, I can protect myself, I refuse to be intimidated”.
Future plans: The aim of Mission 1000 is to reach out to, and transform the lives of at least 1000 underprivileged children and women every year. Through Mission 1000 we wish to offer free karate self-defense workshops for those who need it but are unable to afford it.
