In today’s day it is not a bad idea to drop a few dollars on improving your safety. We may think we know how to protect ourselves but there is always room for improvement. As for me, I am a small girl who cannot do a pull up. I’m fit for the most part but I don’t have the skills to take down someone coming after me. My goal is to help persuade you to at least THINK about learning more. If you don’t want to spend money on a course, pick up some articles to read and practice some skills on your own. This is a great idea for both men and women!
- Learning Something New
We like to think we know everything but it’s not even close. It’s the same as watching a documentary, learning new things increases your awareness and it makes you more confident.
This is the biggest one. Everyone wants to feel safe and secure but we don’t always feel that way. Therefore learning techniques of what to do when your safety is in danger can help ease your mind. This is especially true for those with anxiety or trouble acting on impulse. The feeling of safety is an important aspect of life.
3. Increased Self Confidence
If you’ve ever been in a public place and got lost from your friends or family for a moment, a panic may come accross you from being in an unfamiliar place alone. If you know self defense techniques, you can be confident that you can take care of yourself and focus on finding the people that wandered from you.
4. Tone That Body
Self Defense isn’t easy! It takes hard work and dedication. Not only do you need to be mentally prepared but physically prepared also. As I said earlier, I can barely do a pull up. Therefore my arm strength is weak. Therefore in my case, they would use the advtange of a having a strong lower body by teaching techniques based on the lower body. And slowly build working on the upper body.
Everyone has tried to start a healthy habit and gave up because it was either time consuming or kept you from doing something you would rather do. But, if you stick with something like self defense, it builds your self discipline to be able to stick to healthy habits.
6. Protect Others
Most of us have loved ones that we worry about too. So not only are we assisting our safety but we are assisting theirs too! Being able to protect yourself and others can take a huge weight off of your shoulders.
Think of the awesome people you will meet in these classes. They want to help you with all the above aspects and that is dedication. It could bring lifelong friendships. Most likely other people like you will be in those classes wanting to get the same things out of it.
If anything, really think of these 6 reasons. There are NO downfalls to becoming more aware in self defense. In future blogs we will provide you further information on available self defense programs!
