The Women Cell of Jain University celebrated Women’s Day on 8 March 2016 with a program on self-defense for its girl students. More than 200 students from different streams of the University like Commerce, Science, Engineering, and Arts attended the program enthusiastically.

Sensei Matthew Rajan, Assistant Professor of Life Sciences, Jain University, and his 17 disciples from Wakayama Karate Academy, demonstrated self-defense techniques that could be implemented by girls without formal training in martial arts. Matthew fired the opening salvo by asking the students “What is self-defense?” and pat came the reply, “Defending yourself”. “Yes Karate is defending yourself, but more than that, it is a way of life. It takes you to the next level of maturity,” elucidated Matthew. “Mind is the biggest weapon in Karate. Hands, legs, and the body are trained to train your mind and increase your confidence,” he added. After the initial explanation of the fundamentals of Karate, Matthew and his team of Karate students began live demonstrations of techniques that excited the onlookers.

Starting with simple warmups, the martial arts students captivated the attention of the spectators by displaying complex pushups, cartwheels, rolls and other exercises. They went on to explain with demonstration, the techniques of unlocking attackers, throwing them down, and even scratching your way out of trouble by irritating the potential opponent and charting the quickest and safest escape route. Perhaps the most dangerous item of the day was the stunt performed by the senior students of Wakayama. They broke stacked tiles with bare knuckles that were lit on fire. Apart from that, tiles were broken using legs, elbows, and even the bare body.

Ms. Usha M S, faculty from Center for Postgraduate Studies, Jain University, was elated by the session. “It was a wonderful program. Self-defense was apt for Women’s Day celebrations,” she said. Rachana, a student from School of Engineering Technology, Jain University, felt that the program was very useful. “This session on self-defense was really good and practical. We actually got to know how to protect ourselves and what karate is,” she said. Overall, the session on self-defense was very warmly received by the students of Jain University. With crimes against women rising every day, these techniques might come in handy for students in future to protect themselves.
