If you’re feeling just a little bit worried about the zombie apocalypse, and you happen to live in Poland, have we got a seminar for you. As you may have guessed, this is a seminar for living humans wanting to learn techniques in preparing to defend themselves from a zombie attack, and not for zombies to learn self defense (although I would pay good money to see that)!
The organizers describe the seminar:
The Zombie Attack Seminar will be held [on August 30th] at the Academy of Physical Education in Warsaw, Poland at the Defense Line Club. The course will be based on Krav Maga and Defendo self defense systems. [These defense systems] will be adapted to fighting and defending against zombies.
Karol Przybyla explains that it would be very difficult and improbable to “kill” a zombie with your bare hands, but you can successfully defend against it. There won’t be any armbars or techniques that cause pain, he says, because zombies would likely not feel pain.
The seminar will consist of:
TACTICS – explaining the tactics of a fight with a zombie – don’t get surrounded by them, try to keep them in a straight line and others
DEFENSE – stopping kicks and powerful punches/pushes – everything that may and will make a zombie lose it’s balance as well as back up – no straight or any other fist punches as seen on TV due to the risk of getting your fist cut on it’s teeth
ESCAPING and defending from a zombie after being knocked to the ground
ATTACK – fighting techniques using everyday objects like crowbars, axes, batons
SUMMARY – the learned techniques will be performed on zombies in a group attack. (The zombies will be the instructor’s assistants with proper safety gear and body part guards).
The seminar will be conducted by a Krav Maga black belt and Defendo black belt instructor – Łukasz Osiecki, a member of the Krav Maga Network.
