A unique self defense program entirely designed for the visually impaired has been developed by the Enabling Safety Project. Sensei Stephen Nicholls, of the British Kodenkan Ju Jitsu, has spent four years of close cooperation with the visually impaired community to devise the Mega Self Defense Program (Mega means eye in Japanese). It teaches specifically designed self defense techniques. Rooted in traditional martial arts, those techniques have been adapted to the specific requirements and abilities of the visually impaired community in order to address its specific issues: How does one target one’s attacker and defend oneself if one cannot see? What does one do when one cannot make a quick escape? What are the laws and regulations that allow one to protect oneself and how do these differ for the visually impaired?
