We all strive for that feeling of being mentally, financially and physically stable. Taking care of ourselves in all kinds of situations is important and provides us with feelings of confidence and assurance. For many, the physical part is just exercise. Exercise alone doesn’t always give us the assurance that we need when put into stressful situations. That kind of assurance can be gained through any form of self-defense classes. When people think about self-defense classes, they tend to think they are just for women or children. This thinking is incorrect, self-defense classes (such as karate, jiu jitsu, Tae Kwon Do, etc.) are for everyone.
Some of the top reasons to take a self-defense course are:
- It builds confidence and develops your warrior spirit
- It helps your balance and reflexes
- It helps develop self-discipline
- It improves your physical conditioning
- It improves your street awareness
- It teaches self-respect
- It helps with goal setting
- It has a positive influence on your life.
When looking for a self-defense class you will want to keep in mind the location but also the instructor. Do your research; find out how long your instructor has been in practice and if he/she has competed at a higher level, who have they trained under and what is their experience. You owe it to yourself to better your self-awareness and be the best you can be, armed for anything that is tossed your way.
DFF is offering a Women’s Self Defense Seminar on June 22nd. This course is open to members and non-members (Men & Women). Instructor Stephen Weeks will be teaching this course. Steven holds a second degree black belt in Tae Kwon Do, brown belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and has competed professionally in mixed martial arts. Stephen is also a certified personal trainer and has been collectively training of over 15 years.
Some of what you will be learning will be The ABC’s of self-defense, how to avoid/escape “worst case scenario” situations and how to overcome a larger and stronger opponent.
Why we chose to offer this course? Because self-defense calls greatness out of women and empowers them to be more than what they think they can be. We hope to see you on the 22nd!
