Why Womens study self-defense?


During the times of this country to be first introduced to Japanese Karate, and other forms of Martial-Arts, it was a beginning for many women to want to learn how to defend themselves, and to become better mothers to their children.

Regardless of what style women find fascinating, it has its benefits and gives women the opportunity, to not only learn self-defense, but to also increase self-confidence and, self esteem, where she may feel secure from a dangerous world.

Usually when a woman is attacked, it is always by a bigger person, and sadly common, but a male who is stalking the woman, or is related to the individual where she becomes a victim of a crime.

With the various forms of fighting, whether it is women’s basic self defense, traditional martial arts, or boxing, many women wish to feel secure and to feel they need to protect their children, whether or not a man is present in the family’s lives.
