The 4 Important Reasons to Take Self-Defense Classes

Self-Defense Classes

You’re probably reading this article because you want to learn self-defense, or how to handle and deflect a physical attack. In our classes, we cover everything you need to know about self-defense–including how to position yourself, strike, block, and break free–but we’ll also teach you really important mental tactics awareness, threat prevention, and keeping calm in high-stress situations. We may be biased, but we believe self-defense is one of the most important skills in the world. And after reading this article, we hope you’ll agree with us! Read more to find out the 4 best reasons to take self-defense classes.

 

You Never Know What Will Happen

self-defense classesLet’s face it – after the biggest pandemic of our lifetimes, it’s clear that we have far less control than we think! Normal life can be disrupted at any time, by anything. Unfortunately, it’s just impossible to guarantee that you’ll pass each day safely and without threat. This isn’t something to think too far into or a reason to stop you from leaving the house, but it’s necessary to reflect on from time to time. Especially when you’re considering self-defense classes. All of our students know that self-defense is the one thing you don’t want to have to use, but you’ll be glad you learned it if you do have to use it. Our preschool martial arts classes prepare everyone of all ages to handle an attack and protect themselves and their loved ones from harm, and we’re proud to be able to teach our students how to stay resilient, stay calm, and stay prepared for life’s unpredictability.

 

Protect Yourself 

self-defense classesThe ability to keep yourself safe with self-defense classes for women is critical to feeling empowered and confident in any situation. We are in no way endorsing going down dark alleys alone or pursuing a truly dangerous activity. If you find yourself in a compromising situation and need to fight back, self-defense is absolutely necessary. We like to teach smart self-defense classes; physical self-defense combined with mental awareness and education on how to avoid a fight in the first place. Our students know how to de-escalate conflicts and avoid them, but if an altercation gets physical, again, it’s better to have self-defense and use it than to not have that training at all. The mental elements and the physical elements of our martial arts classes combined help you maintain physical safety and psychological awareness of threat or danger.

 

Protect Your Loved Ones with Our Self-Defense Classes

self-defense classesIn this world, most parents want to make sure their kids know how to defend themselves. Unfortunately, women are more likely to need to use self-defense training, so parents want to make sure their daughters especially know how to keep themselves safe. It’s one thing to protect yourself, it’s another entirely to protect those you love. There would be nothing more heartbreaking than feeling like you could have done more if your loved one was attacked or got into a fight in your presence. It’s also critical to pass down self-defense education to your children, partners, loved ones, and community members so they can keep themselves and their family members safe, if anything should happen when you’re not there to protect them. That’s why we do what we do with our self-defense classes for kids; to help educate the community and create an empowered population. It’s also totally probable that teaching your kids, siblings, cousins, and neighbors your new self-defense moves will inspire them to learn too!

 

Fitness with Purpose through Our Self-Defense Classes

self-defense classesResearch has shown that self-defense classes help students feel more confident and capable in their bodies in public situations. Confidence could mean aesthetically, as you’ll build a sweat and get fit in our classes, but it also means feeling safe and secure existing in a physical space where threats or attackers can come from anywhere, at any time (again- you never know what will happen). Plus, you’re breaking a sweat every class in a way that is purposeful, so you feel even more accomplished after every class. Training until it’s all muscle memory in our martial arts classes is a wonderful exercise in self-discipline, and transforming into a strong, capable person when you walk into the studio is an incredible accomplishment. This is especially true for our female students, who tend to feel better being in public after they’ve learned self-defense and its benefits.

What do you think- ready to join self-defense classes near me? It really is critical, and we do believe it’s one of the most important skills we can teach to our community. So all in all, the best reasons to learn self-defense go beyond just physical safety. When you learn self-defense, you’re empowering yourself and those around you to live safer lives!
