It’s likely that you’re 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 all the basics of self defense, including how to position yourself, striking, blocking, and breaking free, but we also cover psychological skills like 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
Especially after the year 2020, it’s abundantly clear that we have far less control than we think! Normal life can be disrupted at any time by any thing. 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 stay resilient, stay calm, and stay prepared for life’s unpredictabilities.
Keep Yourself Safe
If you want to feel empowered and confident in any situation, physically speaking? Take self defense classes. We’re not saying you should walk down dark alleys alone or purposefully put yourself in harm’s way – but if you find yourself in a compromising situation and need to fight back, self defense is absolutely essential.
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, 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.
Protect Your Loved Ones
Fact- most parents want to make sure their kids take self defense classes and know self defense. 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 especially 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.
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
Research has shown that self defense classes help students feel more confident and capable in their bodies in public situations.
You’ll definitely feel more confident in your physique, because our classes help you get fit fast, 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 but 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 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. 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!
