Perdeby experience: self-defence class

POOJA PUNDIT

Every week Perdeby sends its journalists to experience something out of their comfort zones. This week Perdeby attended an MMA (mixed martial arts) self-defence class.

Knowing how to physically defend yourself is a necessity. Doing an MMA class is something I needed to tick off my bucket list, which is why this opportunity was great. The only downside of the class was an awful lot of aching afterwards.

What you should have learned in school: what to look for in contracts

POOJA PUNDIT

Every week, Perdeby takes a look at something you should have learned at school to assist you in day to day life. This week, we take a look at what to look out for in contracts. 

Knowing what to look for in a contract is an imperative tool for everyone. Whether it is a contract for buying your first car, a job contract, or a lease agreement, it is important to be aware of the obligations and clauses. Before signing a contract, be sure to seek the guidance of a lawyer to ensure your interests are secured before you sign the document. These are just a few tips to keep in mind when reading and signing a contract.

Perdeby experience: CrossFit

CARLY TWADDLE

Every week Perdeby sends its journalists to experience something out of their comfort zones. This week Perdeby decided to give CrossFit a try.

The most common notion of CrossFit is a bunch of people who constantly tell you that they do CrossFit. After one session, I completely understand why. To be able to say that you survived even one session is no small feat. I decided to put the world-renowned exercise routine to the test with CrossFit coach Nadia Rossouw from CrossFit Taniwha at Atterbury Value Mart.
