ITF Self Defence Training for World Food Programme staff members in Thailand, 3rd Nov.2010

UN staff made aware.
Twenty-four staff from the World Food Program’s Asian regional office participated in an introductory self defence class conducted by Sabums Graham and Rachanok Moulden from the International Taekwon-do Federation Thailand.

The two hour practical class was a follow on from the corporate personal awareness training provided by the organizations Human resources department. The participants enthusiastically practiced a range of defence routines including attempted grabs, body grabs, punches and several defence techniques against blunt weapons knives and guns.
The participants from a range of foreign countries were encouraged to place emphasis on being aware of their surroundings particularly when they travel abroad. “These skills are like an insurance policy for yourself and those you associate with including family, friends and work colleagues” Sabum Moulden said. “Self defence works on the basis that you have done everything correctly and the attack is unprovoked” he added.
There was a good mix of male and female participants and it is hoped that there may be interest in a more comprehensive course whereby staff can really learn a wider range of techniques tailored to their actual work environment.
Sabum Moulden stressed that regular Taekwon-Do training was the best way to develop well rounded self defence skills in addition to enhancing their physical and mental well being.
At the conclusion of the class Mr John Aylieff.Deputy Regional Director of the World Food Program Asia thanked Sabums Graham and Rachanok and presented them with a gift in appreciation for donating their time to his staff.
