Expert to teach self defense in Londonderry


LONDONDERRY — A counterterrorism expert from Israel will reach out to seasoned martial arts experts — as well as citizens searching for peace of mind — during his visit to Londonderry this week.

Though retired now, Avi Nardia spent many years working in his Israel’s special forces.

.
These days Nardia, who arrived in Londonderry Sunday morning, travels the nation teaching his self-defense tactics to both police and military units along with civilians.

He said his focus evolved after the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, when he felt a calling to work with regular civilians on what he likes to call “Practical Martial Arts,” which incorporates aspects of karate, judo and Brazilian jiu-jitsu to empower individuals to protect themselves and their families.
..
Nardia plans to teach a variety of workshops and classes this week, including training for veteran martial artists at Koryukan Martial Arts, located at 15 Londonderry Road, Unit 8.

A free public demonstration and workshop will take place at the studio on Thursday, March 6, at 6:30 p.m. No registration is required, but all participants must be at least 18 years old.
..
For more information, call Koryukan at 247-8546.
