Self defence is as relevant today in our modern cities, as it was ancient times. Whilst most of us don’t have to worry about self defence from marauding wild animals, it can sometimes be frightening to watch the news or read the paper and see the latest attack or attempted abduction, especially when it is near where we work or live.

Learn the right tactics of Self- defence

Self- defence involves the use of various countermeasure tactics to deflect harm to oneself in the event of a sudden attack or any other physical danger.

We live in an unpredictable world and if you find yourself in a situation where you have to defend yourself, how will you react? Would you scream for help and run? Would that work? Reach out for a sharp object like a set of keys in your bag and try to temporarily distract the assailant? Or will you stay mentally calm and prepared to fight and defend yourself?

The kind of defence tactic we use in such a situation may vary from person to person, but learning the fundamentals of self-defence not only makes you more confident & independent, but is also invaluable knowledge.

Prepare for the unexpected with self defence

Self defence is not about living in fear, it’s being prepared for the unexpected. If you drive a car you carry a spare tyre so that if you get a flat you’re prepared, you hope you’ll never need it, but it’s nice to know it’s there if you do.

On the mental and emotional side, self defence also teaches us confidence, focus, calmness, stress management (you don’t want to panic if you’re defending yourself), self discipline and determination. These are things that everyone can use and benefit from in their everyday life in the office, at school, home, or social events.
