February 27, 2014, Toronto, Canada - In this SAFE International Self Defense Blog I would like to discuss the importance of self defense.
Self defense involves more than just learning how to neutralize an opponent with powerful punches and kicks. Self defense is having awareness, assertiveness, verbal confrontation skills, safety strategies, and physical concepts that enable you to successfully prevent, escape, resist, and survive an assault.
SAFE International teaches self defense movements that focus on gross motor skills and simple movements. With SAFE International you can expect to learn to be more alert, to recognize danger and have pre-practiced plans to escape it. We give our students simple, effective ways to fend off and escape an attacker. You will also be learning holds and releases to use if you are confronted by an assailant.
It is an unfortunate reality that the average woman and man do not know how to defend herself during a physical attack or assault. That is why it is important for all women to have the basic knowledge and ability to fend off an attacker.
SAFE International is founded on the principles of teaching excellence, structured methodology, personal attention and tradition. For more questions or to sign up for a teaching session visit our website. 1 800 465-5972
