Get Out There And Have Some Fun

Hey! Welcome to my action-packed blog which is going to detail all of the fun things you can do in your spare time. I used to spend my spare time surfing the internet, watching the TV and eating snacks. However, all of that changed when I made friends with a guy called Dan in my local bar. Dan was really into sports and activities such as sailing, shooting and hiking. When he promised to get me out there, I thought he was joking. However, after spending a couple of weekends with Dan I was hooked on doing activities. I hope you like my blog.

Four Tell-Tale Signs You Should Go to a Self-Defence Class

There are many benefits to self-defence classes, from learning new skills to having a solid plan in place if you're attacked. This article explains four signs that you would really benefit from going to classes. 

You Want to Learn a Useful New Skill

Learning new skills is a fantastic way to keep your mind active and keep expanding your horizons. Perhaps you promised yourself you'd learn something new this year, or maybe you feel like you haven't tried anything new lately. Either way, self-defence is an amazing skill to learn, as it teaches you how to defend yourself, how to be aware of your surroundings, and also some basic martial arts skills. It'll help you stay fit, and may lead to further interest in martial arts and self-defence.

You Don't Feel Safe in Your Area

Unfortunately, many people do not feel safe walking around in their area, especially at night. ABC News explains that around 50% of women feel unsafe at night. So, whether you've moved to a new area and feel nervous, or want to feel happy when walking home from work, self-defence classes are a great way to improve your confidence. If you know that you have the skills to respond appropriately if attacked or challenged, it will make your walk more pleasant.

You Don't Know What You'd Do If You Were Attacked

Do know what you would do if you were attacked in public? What would you do if someone was following you, or tried to snatch your bag? Do you know how to disarm an attacker, attract attention, or how much force to use? If not, you might benefit from self-defence classes. They will teach all these things, and allow you to practice so if it happens in real life, it'll be second nature. As explained above, having a solid plan in place will make your feel more confident and help you to avoid panic.

You Want to Empower Your Daughter

Finally, you should take self-defence classes if you want to inspire and empower a younger family member, such as a daughter or niece. Many places offer mother and daughter self-defence classes where you can learn and practice together. This is a great bonding experience, and the things she learns in the classes are sure to make her feel confident and empowered. Plus, it means you won't have to worry about her as much!

Whether you want to learn a new skill, feel comfortable walking around your town at night, need a plan for a worst-case scenario, or want to help a younger family member, self-defence classes are sure to be a rewarding and useful experience.
