Learning proper self defence techniques is one thing that anyone can do to increase their own personal safety.

This doesn’t just go for children; adults – both men and women – can benefit immensely from learning self defence techniques and practicing them until they are mastered. The benefits are clear and ongoing. Self defence techniques are a gift that you give to yourself that you can carry through your lifetime. They are a gift that you can give to your family in terms of being able to protect them and teach them how to protect themselves as well.

Self defence is not just about physical protection but about mental awareness. You cannot underestimate the power of awareness. Were you to research crimes of opportunity, you would quickly find that targets were essentially unaware. They were either wearing headphones while jogging or talking or texting on the mobile, or entered an area where there was no escape. See, bad guys pay attention to these tiny little details. That means you should too.
