Teens Martial Arts Classes

Women’s self-defense classes in Garwood can come from a variety of different sources, but if you truly want to learn self-defense the right way, martial arts is a no-brainer! There’s so much more to our self-defense program than meets the eye, including psychology lessons on danger awareness and hidden mental benefits that may surprise you. Read on to learn some basic self-defense tips and to find out more about how our self-defense program is changing lives in Garwood!

Self-Defense Classes: The Basics

Women's Self-Defense ClassesWomen’s self-defense classes itself is a phrase with many different connotations. Some people associate self-defense with guns or violence. Others associate it with legal justifications (“I did it out of self-defense!”). But our Spyda Muay Thai definition of self-defense is using your words and your actions to defend yourself and others from an attacker.

This is what makes martial arts self-defense training so different from any others. It is not just about the physical moves that can protect you, like the punches, kicks, and locks. It’s about stopping conflict dead in its tracks with your confidence and your assertiveness, before things even have a chance to go sideways–and learning how to stay out of trouble in the first place. Building confidence and bravery to look someone in the eye and loudly say, “Get your hand off of me” or “I don’t know you, stop harassing me.” And ultimately, it’s about protecting yourself and your loved ones with as minimal damage as possible.

Self-Defense for Women

Women's Self-Defense ClassesWhile martial arts is for everybody looking to get fit and learn self-defense, the development of confidence and mental strength is especially helpful for women, who are more likely to find themselves in self-defense situations than their male counterparts. According to one 2013 study from the University of Oregon, when women took self-defense training they were 3x less likely to be raped and 2x less likely to receive unwanted sexual contact than those who did not take women’s self-defense classes. Many factors play into sexual assault, and if you’ve experienced sexual assault, it’s not your fault. With the help of this study, we know that, for everyone, there are actions we can take to teach ourselves, our daughters, nieces, neighbors, and the women we care about how to use their voices to be heard and de-escalate conflict before it even begins. Girl power!

How We Teach Self-Defense

Women's Self-Defense ClassesIf you’re interested in women’s self-defense classes, you should know how they’re being taught. Unlike other self-defense training, the physical act of self-defense is just one piece of our martial arts classes in Garwood. Our classes are based on different moves and activities that our students learn each week. They practice consistently to turn the moves into muscle memory, so that they know exactly what to do in an emergency, pretty much without thinking.

A few of the techniques that we work on in our martial arts school are kick techniques, punch techniques, and striking techniques. These can be at a distance or up close to the attacker, to prevent assault from any distance. So there’s the physical aspect (that’ll get you into great shape, by the way), and then there’s the mental aspect. We also teach the “soft skills” that are 100% necessary for success in any area of your life; including perseverance, discipline, and confidence, through positive reinforcement and pushing our students to be the best versions of themselves that they can be, every single week. These mental benefits positively impact your work, relationships, and hobbies… everything improves with martial arts classes, not just your knowledge of self-defense!
