So what is self-defence and why is it important to learn it? Self-defence is basically a countermeasure to defend your own health and wellbeing from harm. Sadly we know that violence against women is a widespread issue across Australia. Learning self-defence is about taking your safety into your own hands. It teaches us awareness and prevention and gives us the knowledge and skills to defend ourselves should the need arise, stopping attacks from occurring and even lessening attacks against other women in the future.
Why martial arts?
Martial arts have long been known for being excellent sports to train for self-defence. Of course, there are many types of martial arts, all with their own benefits and strategies that make them excellent in terms of self-defence. From Krav Maga to MMA and BJJ, all teach us ways to protect our body from harm. At Krav Maga Brisbane we believe Krav Maga is the best martial art for self-defence and we teach our classes based on real-life scenarios to develop an effective self-defence system based with effective results. We believe that training martial arts is highly effective for self-defence and has many other positive impacts on your health and well-being.

Self-defence arms women with the ability to defend themselves should the need arise. With violence against women becoming more frequently heard of in our news headlines there has never been a better time to ensure you are prepared should the worst happen. Martial arts and self-defence have often been associated as a ‘male’ dominated sport but this couldn’t be further from the truth. In actuality, women's self-defence is incredibly feminine as it empowers women to take control of their own safety and wellbeing.

Added benefits of training Women's self-defence training. So we know that training women's self-defence classes can provide you with real-life, effective self-defence skills, improve your fitness, stamina and strength, help lose unwanted kg and improve your posture and flexibility but what other benefits can this form of training provide to your overall health and wellness? Regular training can also have positive impacts on your mindset and your overall health and wellness.
Learning a new skill can be such a great confidence boost in itself but learning skills that make you feel empowered and safer such as women's self-defence can have a hugely positive impact on your self-confidence and self-esteem. We all hope never to have to be in a position where we need to defend ourselves but unfortunately, it does happen. Having the skills and confidence to defend and protect yourself if the need arises and how to counter any attacks in the quickest and most effective way is something we believe will benefit women in more ways than one.
