Stage Combat

Bullying and Harrassment in the Workplace

Every year in November I teach the entire year 9 cohort unarmed stage combat.

It is two full days of slaps, punches, eye gouging and falling to the floor.

While I love teaching this workshop it is intense and very noisy.

This year I have an extra problem. At four and a half months pregnant, apparently it is not advisable for me to approach the next two days with my usual gusto and enthusiasm – and definitely no falling to the floor! The two fellas who help me out are extremely enthusiastic but they are not specialists. However they are very protective and looking forward to throwing some punches on my behalf tomorrow.

So in the words of Drowning Pool: Let the bodies hit the floor – as long as none of them are mine!
