Self-Defense

“The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.”  

-Edmund Burke

Develop skills that make you capable of protecting yourself and those you love during an attack.  

We believe in the power of knowledgemuscle memory and action when it comes to self-defense.

Today, when people think about self-defense classes, they tend to think about women and children. However, self-defense classes  are for everyone.

Benefits of self-Defense

 

1. situational awareness

Self-defense classes will enhance your awareness of your surroundings. You’re never planning to be attacked but self-defense classes will help you to be aware and ready, should this type of situation arise. You will learn the necessary reactions and skills to protect yourself. 

2. safety

Self-defense classes will give you the ability to protect yourself and your loved ones from 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.

3. BUILD CONFIDENCE

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. Knowing you can protect yourself is a confidence booster as much as it is a reassurance. A reassurance that can only be gained through training.

4. develop a fighter's reflex

In a fight, movement is power. You cannot stand around and wait for your attacker’s next strike; moving and instinctual reactions are very important. Self defense classes will help develop your reflexes and will help you gain a fighter’s reflex, which will allow you to move quickly and effectively in such a situation. You will know where to step and where to strike.

5. develop self-discipline

In order to learn and grow with your self-defense abilities, you have to develop your self-discipline. You have to be motivated and dedicated to the practice. Actually going to class and showing up on a regular basis develops your discipline. Like with any sport, you can’t get better if you don’t practice.

6. improve your physical conditioning

The whole point of self-defense classes is to prepare you for any situation that may bring harm to you. Physical conditioning is extremely important when it comes to self-defense. Training and practicing prepares you for a situation that may require you to fight. Physical conditioning will work on your speed, strength and stamina.  When you are fighting it is important to be focused both mentally and physically.

7. INCREASE BALANCE

Improving your balance also means improving focus. Self defense classes teach you how to focus on your target while you control your body. Without balance it is almost impossible to fight. Through gaining your body control and balance, you will be better prepared to protect yourself.

8. learn something new

It’s not every day that you have the chance to learn something new while fighting someone, even if it is practice in a controlled setting. Learning allows our minds and bodies to grow and improve. Learning new things revolves around encouraging your successes and accepting your defeats while working to change those defeats into future successes; both are important to engaging in a healthy lifestyle.

9. help you Set goals

The goals we set are the goals we get.  Self-defense classes help you to set goals. Whether you want to nail a specific move, or work hard to feel like you can protect yourself, you are setting a goal. It gets you back in class each week, and will help you in your everyday life. It helps you develop a drive that you may not have had before. If you take your goal setting seriously within your self-defense classes, it can roll over into your everyday life, helping you get through any tough situation that comes your way.

10. It has a positive influence on your life

Unlike a lot of things in life, taking self-defense classes will have a positive impact on your life. They can boost your spirits and make you a more confident and better version of yourself. It’s important to have things in life that we can rely on to make us happy, taking these kinds of classes does just that.
