Fight Like a Physicist

In this practical and interactive workshop, you will learn how a working understanding of Classical Mechanics is key to a successful career as a ninja. Concepts of centre of mass, gravity and equilibrium are developed using stances, basic foot movements and sweeps. You will learn about how a small person can “win” against a bigger opponent by using the power of physics. Concepts of force, momentum and torque are developed using basic striking and fighting techniques. Learn how pressure, forces and momentum work together when throwing your opponent to the ground.

Suitable for kids aged 8 years and older.
