I've got a contract by the local active retirement group to teach self defence to them-a six week course. Ages 65-80 plus! I'm giving them three talks then will sign up thise that want it for three one hour classes. I plan to do Tony Blaur stuff with them (flinch responses and frames)-SPEAR system-just wandered if any of you guys could offer me some advice on how to proceed with the physical training part-note I have protective jackets, helmets and gloves.
Lets face it the older we get the more of a target we become and I regularly get guys in their mid to late sixties coming to training- the motive being they've suffered a mugging or two-sometime even at the hands of women.
What is the best physical skills we can pass on to our fathers and grandfathers? I'm okay with the theory part-though any helpful info. resources gladly recieved-particularly regarding "Home security".
