Safety: Self-defense will give you the ability to protect yourself and overcome an attacker. Knowing how to defend yourself can help you feel less anxious in public, or fearful when walking alone in the night. You will learn the basics of how to quickly disable and protect yourself from an attacker so that you can escape.
Street awareness: Self defense classes will enhance your awareness of your surroundings. You never know when it might happen; you never plan to be attacked, so you must always be on the lookout of your surroundings. Self defense classes will help you gain this awareness if this type of situation should arise.
Increased self confidence: Training in self defense helps people, especially women, develop more confidence in themselves and their surroundings. Knowing that you have the ability to defend yourself gives you the confidence and freedom to fully explore the world, meet new people and find new ways to engage with others.
Learning something new: It’s not every day that you have the chance to learn something new while fighting someone, even if it is only practice in a controlled setting. It is all about perspective and your willingness to learn something new. Learning new things revolves around encouraging your successes and accepting your defeats; both are important to a engaging in a healthy lifestyle.
Toned muscles: Like most self-defense classes, they do not just focus on being emotionally prepared by an attacker. Being physically prepared for an attack is also equally important. An intense warm-up usually comes first, next comes learning defense techniques.
