You’re probably reading this article because you want to learn self-defense, or how to handle and deflect a physical attack. In our self-defense classes, we cover everything you need to know about self-defense, including how to position yourself, striking, blocking, and breaking free, but we’ll also teach you really important mental tactics awareness, threat prevention, and keeping calm in high-stress situations.
We’re probably not alone in this, 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 Can’t Predict The Future
Especially after the year 2020, it’s abundantly clear that we have far less control than we think! Our everyday lives can be shaken up 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 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 handle anything life throws their way.
The ability to keep yourself safe with self-defense 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 – but if you find yourself in a compromising situation and need to fight back, self-defense is absolutely essential.
At our school self-defense is made up of three components- physical combat, mental awareness, and education on avoiding physical conflict in the first place. Our students know how to de-escalate conflicts and avoid them, but if an altercation gets physical, again, we know it’s much better to have self-defense training than to have nothing 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.
Keep Your Loved Ones Safe
In this world, most parents want to make sure their kids know how to defend themselves. Especially in the unfortunate world we live in, women and daughters are more likely to be attacked, so parents want to make sure their daughters know how to keep themselves safe. It’s important to be able to keep yourself safe, but it’s another thing entirely to be able to keep the people you love safe too.
It would be heartbreaking- and it’s happened before- to feel like you could have done more if someone you loved got attacked 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 run martial arts classes. We want to educate the community and keep everyone as safe as possible, and self-defense is the best way to do it. Learning self-defense for yourself will rub off on the people you care about, and you’ll all feel as safe and capable as possible in any situation you come across.
Get Fit In A Purposeful Way
Students who take self-defense classes feel more confident and capable in their bodies in public, especially women. Confidence here could mean aesthetic confidence, as self-defense classes do help you work up a sweat with regular practice.
Self-defense 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). Not only that but you’re working out and moving your body, but in a way that is purposeful, so you feel even more accomplished after every class.
Developing the muscle memory of self-defense you need in our martial arts classes is a wonderful exercise in self-discipline, and it’s such an accomplishment to look back on your progress and see how you’ve transformed. 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.
So are you ready to self defense classes yet? It really is critical, and we do believe it’s one of the most important skills we can teach to our community. Hopefully, now you can understand that 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! Check out our life-saving Self-defense classes right here at our school! Free Trial Offer!
