Self-defence classes offer basic and special skills in work with the theoretical and practical foundation, which working in a profession with an increased level of security risk will make it easier to feel comfortable and gain assurance (special training in different situations, as well as in everyday life to protect oneself and others in situations, where health or life is at risk, or damage to public property is made or disorderly behaviour is displayed). The classes provide students with the basic knowledge and skills in working with laws and regulations. Students are offered to acquire various special tools, types of weapons, and promote an understanding of their use. The classes introduce students to different types of psychological states in stressful situations, and raise awareness of the importance of proper nutrition in everyday life, by demonstrating how it interacts with the body’s activities in risk and stressful situations. Intensive classes are also offered, which allow starting in different types of self-defence and close combat disciplines, representing the team of Riga Technical University in competitions.
