For Self-Defence – Think SCA
Who can benefit from taking self-defence classes?
Attending self-defence classes has many benefits and courses can be tailored to suit any student’s needs or abilities. Men, women, children, teenagers and the elderly can develop their self-defence skills under the instruction of our professional teachers. Our expert team will teach you how to use a range of martial arts which will be effective in any situation where you may need to defend yourself or your friends and family. Styles range from traditional boxing through to advanced Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.
What do you learn in a self-defence class?
Improve your focus, both on the target and your surroundings so that you know how to recognise suspicious behaviour and how to disable an attacker. As a result of learning how to defend yourself and handle tough or stressful situations, you get a confidence boost and feel better prepared. You will work on your fighter’s reflex and avoid freezing up if attacked by knowing what to do without even thinking about it.
Is self-defence good for fitness?
It is a great cardiovascular workout that keeps you moving and is ideal for muscle toning. As you progress, your stamina and strength will increase, as will your flexibility, agility and sense of balance. Self-defence is a very physical, well-rounded discipline that combines basic moves and intricate skills to train your body and mind.
Why learn about self-defence at a young age?
For children who are the target of bullying or are bullying others, self-defence classes will teach them how to resolve their issues without resorting to violence. Controlling your emotions, stepping out of your comfort zone and learning to defend yourself against a physical attack are big parts of martial arts. These skills are hugely important, even more so since bullying in schools is on the rise, so it is best to be prepared. As a parent, you will be confident that your child has a chance of avoiding injury and defending themselves – when shouting for help doesn’t work, self-defence will.
What are the benefits of self-defence sessions for women?
Women, especially those who are younger or travelling alone, find learning self-defence particularly useful since they are unfortunately more likely to experience violence than men. Instead of being an easy target, self-defence courses mean you are equipped with the knowledge and practical skills that can help you stop or escape an attacker.
