Corporate Wellness

The Wu-Shin Chi-Dao Foundation for Self-Development offers a number of specially designed courses for the corporate market from security guard training to specialised self-defence training for women, to group sessions for health, wellness, and de-stressing of staff and management, as well as executive mind-power training, and courses in conflict management.

These courses can tailored to your needs and be be short and intensive, or on-going, and can be designed to suit a company's unique profile and ethos, or desired outcomes.

For example:

  • We taught T'ai Chi Ch'uan classes at Celtico CC, twice a week, in the early mornings on an on-going basis from November 2004 to December 2008, when the company relocated.

  • In 2007 we ran a series of 8-session self-defence courses for female staff, held once-a-week at lunch times at the Head Office of the Mediterranean Shipping Company (Pty) Ltd (South Africa); and in 2008 we were asked to repeat the course for additional staff as well as conducted more advanced Level 2 and Level 3 training over 10-session programmes.

  • In 2008, 2009, and 2010 we conducted numerous intensive two-week courses to provide progressive security guard training for the Amadoda Security Division of Hollywood Sportsbook Holdings. Senior management were highly impressed by the manner in which they successfully negotiated the critically challenging situations that occurred during and following that period. Separate, specialised self-defence courses were also conducted for senior Management, and for female staff members of all ages.

  • In 2009 and 2010 we conducted year-long T'ai Chi Ch'uan classes for the Centre for Fine Art Animation and Design (Pty) Ltd, to assist their students in the development of their artistic talents.
