You Think You Don’t Need Self Defence? Think Again!

In a perfect world we would not be having this conversation. In a perfect world people would not have to defend themselves against an attack, especially women. In a perfect world women should not have to worry about assault, sexual harassment or rape.

Unfortunately we don’t live in a perfect world. You know it, you see it everyday in the news and even if we try to ignore it or to be optimistic and to think it will never happen to you, the reality is, you can’t be sure of it.

In a culture of domestic violence, assault and rape, self-defence for women should be a priority.

 Yes, it outrages you and us too, that women should be taught how to defend themselves, when in fact the root of the problem is the abuser, the attacker, the rapist. They are the ones that should be taught not to do all those things.

 But until that perfect world comes you can take control and you can arm yourself with the ability to fight back and protect yourself and the ones you love.

Daniela: When you begin self-defence training, I always start with context. I explain:

Self-defence for kids. Why and how it should be done

  Why should kids learn self defence? Is it safe for them? What do they get out of it?

Why should kids learn self defence? Is it safe for them? What do they get out of it?

In a culture that seems to have the spotlight on violence, from music to video games, movies and even televisions shows, the idea of enrolling your child in self-defence classes may rise the question: “Is it ever okay to teach your child to hit?”

The reason for that is because, when most people think of self-defence, they think about hitting back or using martial arts. What most of the parents out there don’t understand is that self-defence has nothing to do with hitting or striking another person.

Self-defence is about being aware of your surroundings, leaving before a problem erupts, listening to your gut, using a confident voice and carrying yourself with confidence.

Main reasons to take self-defence classes:
