Benefits of Self Defence Classes

Learning Self Defence skills benefits you in ways that extend beyond discovering how to protect yourself, boosting self- esteem and positively affecting your personality.


Empowers you to have the ability to protect yourself and overcome an attacker. Knowing how to defend yourself can help you feel less anxious in public, or fearful when walking alone in the night. You will learn the basics of how to quickly disable and protect yourself from an attacker so that you can escape.

Street awareness:

Self Defence classes will enhance your awareness of your surroundings. You never know when it might happen; you never plan to be attacked, so you must always be on the lookout of your surroundings. Self Defence classes will help you gain this awareness if this type of situation should arise.

Increased confidence:

Training in Self Defence helps people, especially women, develop more confidence in themselves and their surroundings. Knowing that you have the ability to defend yourself gives you the confidence and freedom to fully explore the world, meet new people and find new ways to engage with others.

Toned muscles:

Like most Self Defence classes, they do not just focus on being emotionally prepared by an attacker. Being physically prepared for an attack is also equally important. An intense warm-up usually comes first, next comes learning defence techniques. Women usually have stronger lower bodies than most men; most Self Defence classes like to utilize this statistic to help women learn to use their lower bodies so they can overcome their potential attackers.

Overall fitness:

Through learning Self Defence, you will maintain your muscle and endurance through practicing along with other exercise activities. Naturally, your overall fitness will improve. An intense warmup to get your adrenaline pumping, followed by a variety of fitness techniques, will improve your overall body condition while teaching you important Self Defence techniques.


Improving your balance not only includes the physical balance of your core muscles but also a mental balance by improving your focus. Karate and Self Defence classes teach you how to focus on your target while you control your body. Without balance, it is almost impossible to fight. Through gaining your body control and balance, you will be better prepared to protect yourself mentally and physically.

Self Defence reflex:

In a Self Defence situation, movement is power. You cannot stand around and wait for your attacker’s next strike; moving and instinctual reactions are very important. Self Defence classes will help develop your reflexes and will help you gain a fighter’s reflex, which will allow you to move quickly and strategically in such a situation. You will know where to step and where to throw your punch.
