“EEMA has been constantly trying to keep the spirits of all involved high in this industry during these testing times, with the detailed SOP in place This is the second EEMA East on-ground project which works as an example that YES we are ready to start safe events, all we need to do is follow the SOP rules and guidelines by the Government,” Chowdhury added.
The workshop combined a showcase of techniques by trainers and Ryena. They demonstrated techniques and basic manoeuvres which one could use to escape/protect oneself in a dangerous situation.
