self defence for wheelchair users

Self-protection for wheelchair users is not something that you see often, and when you do  it is either a collection of unrealistic techniques or even worse selling an idea that provides a false sense of confidence.

Wing Chun experts Steve Dyde and his student Carl Hodgetts have focused their training on Carl’s strengths and in this World of Martial Arts Television exclusive they show us some of their Effective Self Defence For Wheel Chair Users.
