The 4 Reasons Why You Need to Take Self-Defense Classes

Self-defense classes

You’re likely 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, strike, block, and break free. But we also cover psychological skills like 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 Never Know What Will Happen

Best Martial Arts Style for FitnessEspecially 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. It’s necessary to reflect on it from time to time, especially when you’re considering self-defense classes. Every student in our self-defense classes for kids knows that it’s the one skill you pray you never have to use, but you’ll be so glad you learned it. Our adult karate classes prepare every one of all ages to handle an attack and protect themselves and their loved ones from harm. 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 classesDo 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 essential. We like to teach smart self-defense classes for women; physical self-defense combined with mental awareness and education on how to avoid a fight in the first place. All of our students learn 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

self-defense classesIn 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.

 

Fitness with Purpose

Benefits of TaekwondoResearch has shown that self-defense classes help students feel more confident and capable in their bodies in public situations. Confidence here could mean aesthetic confidence–as self-defense classes near me help work up a sweat with regular practice–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). Not only that, but you’re working out and moving your body purposefully, 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 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.

Did we convince you to take defense classes yet? It 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!
