No karate chopping-clergy!

Sensei Post in Self-Defense

The Church of England is seeking help for it’s battered clergy. A recent survey of 80 clergy showed that 48% had some form of violent experience in the past year within the Diocese of London. Enter former policeman, Nick Tolson who coordinates the National Church watch organization. The diocese may adopt the program within the next three years, however the program will not focus on teaching the clergy to engage in violence. The program will focus on “self rescue” techniques to help the clergy either avoid danger or ro run away from it. Mr Tolson was quoted as saying “We won’t be teaching self-defence moves, it’s not going to be a case of karate chopping-clergy!” To bad I would have liked to see or read about that!!
