Join us and meet fellow professionals and entrepreneurs in a relaxed, business-focused environment. Cappuccino Connections is a great introduction for visitors to experience networking the Athena way!

Athena events are attended by talented and highly motivated individuals - their passion, energy and determination to fulfill their business goals make our networking formula truly unique.

Our members attend regular Cappuccino Connections meetings to build a portfolio of quality business contacts and for a dose of monthly inspiration!

This Month's Topic
Breaking Boundaries

Women entrepreneurs often face a hard time making themselves known or heard because of gender stereotyping. More so when one is in an industry that is male dominated. Qin Yunquan, a chief self defence instructor of Kapap Academy Singapore, will share how she has challenged the traditional roles associated with her gender, break boundaries and redefine what empowerment means to people. From an anorexic victim, to the recipient of the Queen's Young Leaders award 2017, Yunquan will share her journey as first, a lady self defence instructor and second, a social entrepreneur of a top leading self defence school in Singapore.

Presented by
Yunquan Qin

Yunquan is the CEO/ Co-founder, Kapap Academy. She is a KAPAP (Israeli hand to hand combat) instructor and a certified Executive Bodyguard.  In 2016, she became the first lady in Asia to be certified as a Counter Terror Shooting Instructor by the world renowned, Israeli Tactical School (US). She is also a Weapons instructor in the use of knives, tomahawks and machetes. She was also the first lady in Asia Pacific to be a certified Gracie Combatives Instructor by the renowned Gracie Academy (US).  

Yunquan, co-founded an eclectic system of street style fighting, known as Modern Street Combatives, which draws upon realistic self-defense systems such as KAPAP, Catch Wrestling, Gracie Combatives, Savate etc.  Under her leadership, Kapap Academy has grown to be Singapore's top realistic self defense school with a market penetration of over 140 companies and 80 schools.  A former National Wrestler (2013 - 2015), Yunquan was personally trained by the legendary European Catch Wrestling Champion, the late Billy Robinson.
In recognition of Yunquan's contributions to society in helping ordinary people stay safe, she became the first martial artist/ self defense instructor in the world to be personally conferred by, Her Majesty the Queen of England, the status of Queen's Young Leaders (2017).
