On the 11th of January 2012, Master Joe A. Ingrati, who is well versed in many forms of martial arts such as (WTF)Taekwondo, Karate, Ju-Jitsu and Wing Chun visited Island Taekwon-Do Centre and conducted a street self-defense seminar lasting about two and a half hours for students age 13 and a above.
As a close friend of many years with Master Daniel Sng, Master Ingrati didn’t hesitate to teach us as many techniques as he could during the short time frame of the seminar. He taught us how to counter attacks which are most common on the streets, such as a swing punch from the side, a turning kick and a charge from the front. On top of that, he taught us how to turn tables in a ground survival situation, turning you from victim to attacker.
The Seminar ended with everyone of Master Sng’s student bowing and shaking hands with Master Ingrati to thank him for his seminar. Master Sng also presented a plaque to Master Ingrati as an appreciation for conducting the seminar.
After the seminar, some of us also had dinner with Master Ingrati and his wife, and got to know him better.
Personally, I’ve learnt a lot from this session and know that you too, also enjoyed and learnt a lot too! I would like to thank Master Daniel Sng for inviting Master Ingrati to conduct this unforgettable self-defense seminar!
