Self Defense Classes
Why take self defense classes instead of martial arts?
The simple answer is time. It can take a lifetime of study to master any one martial art. There are many martial arts, each with their own history, lineage, culture, techniques and strategies. They can broaden your understanding of your body, mind, and spirit. But most of them are not practical for modern self defense. There isn’t enough time. Modern self defense needs to be easy to learn, have a simple but practical curriculum, and useful the day you learn it. Martial arts teach perfection of movement; making the movements an art.
Self defense isn't concerned with perfection.
It's concerned with getting home safe. Today.
Krav Maga is a self defense combat system used by military and police forces all over the world. As with every skill, the more time and effort you put into it the better you'll get at it. Self defense doesn't require a ton of time to get the most important information. Four classes is enough to get the gist of it. It's enough to give you the skills you'll need to give you a fighting chance. If you can devote yourself to 12 classes, you can learn a well rounded skill set that will be useful to you for the rest of your life. Who knows. One day it may even save it.
You'll find that learning to defend yourself has other benefits that become the reason you stay. Aside from being fun and healthy, self defense classes can help with self esteem, confidence, and discipline. It can help you to conquer your fears and doubts. It can help you be a better you. Give it a shot.
