OPC team turns to Martial Arts for self-defence
Seven colleagues in the OPC London office have started learning Martial Arts incorporating Jeet Kune Do, self defence and kick-boxing.
Our magnificent seven, led by Managing Director Piers Johnson and Reservoir Engineer Nolwenn Perzo, are being tutored by expert instructor Julian Gilmour from Camden Martial Arts at a community centre near the London office.
Our group learnt the basics of self defence and how to defend from blows, as well as some counter-attack moves.
I have been taking regular kick-boxing lessons with Julian and I thought it would be an excellent thing for us to do as a team. It gives great confidence learning how to block and defend yourself against potential aggressors – and it is really fun learning with colleagues.”
Here are some action photos of the team learning the moves:
