4 Best Reasons to Take Self-Defense Classes

Adult karate school

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 everything you need to know about self-defense, including how to position yourself, strike, block, and break free, but we’ll also teach you really important mental tactics 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.

1. You Never Know What Will Happen

Let’s face it- after the biggest pandemic of our lifetimes, it’s clear that we have far less control than we think! Normal life can be disrupted at any time 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, but it’s necessary to reflect on from time to time, especially when you’re considering self-defense classes.

Every student in our self-defense classes knows that it’s the one skill you pray you never have to use- but you’ll be so glad you learned 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 handle anything life throws their way.

2. Protect Yourself

The ability to keep yourself safe with self-defense is critical to feeling empowered and confident in any situation. We are in no way endorsing going down dark alleys alone or pursuing a truly dangerous activity – but if you find yourself in a compromising situation and need to fight back, self-defense is absolutely necessary.

At our studio, we teach intelligent self-defense classes combined with a sharp awareness of one’s surroundings and an education on how to avoid physical conflict in the first place. We teach our students how to de-escalate conflicts and avoid them, but if an altercation gets physical, again, you’d probably rather have self-defense training than not. The mental elements and physical elements of our martial arts classes combined help you maintain physical safety and psychological awareness of threats or danger.

3. Keep Your Loved Ones Safe

Fact- most parents want to make sure their kids take self-defense classes and know self-defense. Unfortunately, women are more likely to need to use self-defense training, so parents want to make sure their daughters especially know how to keep themselves safe. It’s one thing to protect yourself. It’s another entirely to protect those you love.

There would be nothing more heartbreaking than feeling like you could have done more if your loved one was attacked or got into a fight 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.

4. Become More Confident in Your Body

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 purposeful way, 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.

5. Conclusion

What do you think- ready to join 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!
