My Women’s Self Defense training is developed to provide woman with the necessary skills to defend themselves and their families… physically and mentally. Most women are assaulted by someone they know and 40 percent of the time the crime will happen in the victims own home. Facing the possibility of being the target of a violent crime is frightening, but there’s no need for women to live a paranoid-filled life. Although you can’t control every situation, you can make smarter decisions, like avoiding unnecessary risks. Learn to trust your intuition and how to defend yourself. Make the phrase “I hit like girl” strike fear into every would-be rapist out there.
My women self-defense training is developed on the premise that women of every body type and physical condition can learn the key skills of self-defense. Whether you are a girl in middle school, a mother, a business woman, and/or a senior citizen - you can very quickly learn extremely effective and practical techniques to keep you and your family safe!
Self defense for Women is extremely important as unfortunately, statistics show that all women are good candidates for violent crime at some point in their lives. When a woman’s safety is in danger, defending herself through Awareness, Preparation, De-Escalation, Avoidance and Fighting Back is the most ethical decision she can make for herself and her family.
Reasons why you should Learn Self Defense
Women are often times victims of abuse that is atrocious. There’s no excuse for anyone to hit a woman, and yet it happens a great deal. Violence erupts in the home, on the streets, in the job, in school yards, and often it is not men doing this alone, it’s women against each other and it’s chaotic to say the least. All women should learn martial arts, and there are some major reasons for this in our modern society. It would be nice to think that there is no need for it, but that’s not true, there is a need for it and it’s more important than ever.
1. Domestic Abuse
There is nothing that can prepare you for domestic abuse, and it’s something that has come to the forefront of the public opinion due to many situations going into the mainstream news. There is no excuse for this, and for women, this is a life shattering world to be in. Training in martial arts is not to be seen as a preparation for this, but rather a way to at least curb it enough to call for help. Before a hand is raised, confidence in knowing that you can at least protect yourself is good. It can help, it’s not the answer, it’s a minor solution that can at least help for a moment and that moment can be used to call for help.
2. Self Defense
Walking home at night, to your car, an attacker can show up out of the blue. Learning how to stay calm and know pressure points for disarming a criminal is key. You may not be able to physically manhandle someone, but you may learn how to use momentum that they use against them. When someone approaches you from behind, you can use simple leverage to toss them over your shoulder or cast them to the ground, and run, call for help or strike. You get to control the situation and that’s important.
Women don’t always want to lift weights or to get “buff”. Learning martial arts can stretch muscle groups, reduce weight, and strengthen core muscles. This is a great benefit of martial arts training that will bleed into other aspects of life as a whole. Imagine being able to get up earlier, and run through your day without fatigue, lose weight and manage it. Keep up with the kids, and protect them if a criminal element steps in.
It’s important for little girls, teenagers, young adults, and women of all ages to learn how to defend themselves. We unfortunately do not live in utopia. Anything can happen, and we hope and pray that it doesn’t. However, if something goes awry, more women should rise up and control things, which is what can happen when they learn martial arts.
