‘Very tough girls… loved physical training’
As an assistant instructor to Mr. Franklin Joseph, it was my first time in an iTeachiPower.in – Girl Safety Empowerment & Girl Self-Defense Wellness Education Workshop. It was good to interact with girls of my age in this workshop. They were born into families from the underprivileged sector. Due to my father’s background of being born into an underprivileged family and exposed to various crimes during his youth, I was aware that these girls might have been exposed to crimes before being brought into this respected establishment.
During one session of the workshop, my father Guru-ji Franklin Joseph explained the power of our voices. I urged them to loudly say, “NO!”. Many of the girls were shy and couldn’t speak loudly enough. Later on, I saw a girl screaming and talking with a girl on the third floor. This made me realize that these girls had potential but lacked inspiration and courage.
The voice modulation training in our iTeachiPower.in – Girl Safety Empowerment & Girl Self-Defense Wellness Education Workshop is critical as it will break the walls of shyness and fear these girls may face in a real life crime situation. iTeachiPower.in sessions prepare the girls for the real world situation they’ll face in a crime scenario. After practising some tactics & voice modulation drills, the girls gained the confidence to speak up confidently. Furthermore, we gave them physical training by doing tactics as well as physical stress exercises, such as pushups and speed running in the hall, which were thoroughly enjoyed by them.
