Hollywood Actor Glen Levy presents “Art of Self-Defense Workshop” on May 22, 2013 at Walchand
Hirachand Hall, IMC, Churchgate, Mumbai
In light of recent acts of violence and the impending danger faced by Indian citizens all over the country, the Indo-
American Chamber of Commerce and Priyadarshni Academy arranged for an interactive workshop on ‘The Art of Self
Defense/Protection’ by leading Hollywood actor Glen Levy at the Indian Merchants Chamber Hall on May 22, 2013. The
primary objective of the program was to teach people how to best defend themselves when faced with an adverse
situation. The session laid emphasis on the safety and security of women and Glen personally pointed out specific
techniques which women could use to defend themselves.
Glen Levy and the New Zealand-based group Rock Your Life are in India to reach hundreds of audiences through this
workshop to cultivate preventive techniques to curb the occurrence of such attacks. They are working through Indian
groups including The Sage Foundation to reduce the menace.
Rock Your Life, under its film production wing, is also making preparations during the current trip to produce a film
based on Bhagawad Gita in India where we have the opportunity to see Glen dawn the avatar of the chivalrous Arjun.
While Mr. Nanik Rupani, Regional President, IACC-WIC welcomed Glen Levy, his troupe and the gathering, Regional Vice
President, Ms. Rajyalakshmi Rao, IACC-WIC proposed a Vote of Thanks. All attendees were reminded to share what they
had learned with their friends and loved ones. The audience was extremely participative and enjoyed the session
