self-defense classes in westchase

It’s likely that you’re reading this article because you want to learn self-defense, or how to handle and deflect a physical attack. In our self-defense classes, we cover everything you need to know about self-defense, including how to position yourself, striking, blocking, and breaking free, but we also teach you about psychological skills like awareness, threat prevention, and keeping calm in high-stress situations. We may be biased, but we believe self defense is one of the most important skills in the world. And after reading this article, we hope you’ll agree with us! Read more to find out the 4 best reasons to take self defense classes.

You Never Know What Will Happen

W3, Active Jiu Jitsu Westchase TX

Let’s face it- after the biggest pandemic of our lifetimes, it’s clear that we have far less control than we think!

We can’t count on normalcy or routine, because it could be disrupted at any time… Unfortunately it’s just impossible to guarantee that you’ll pass each day safely and without threat.

This isn’t something to think too far into, or a reason to stop you from leaving the house, but it’s necessary to reflect on from time to time, especially when you’re considering self defense classes.

Every student in our self defense classes knows that it’s the one skill you pray you never have to use- but you’ll be so glad you learned it.

Here at Active Jiu-Jitsu in Westchase, our martial arts classes prepare everyone of all ages to handle an attack and protect themselves and their loved ones from harm, and we’re proud to be able to teach our students how to stay resilient, stay calm, and stay prepared for life’s unpredictabilities.

Protect Yourself

Self Defence4, Active Jiu Jitsu Westchase TX

Keeping yourself safe in any situation is a huge skill that a lot of people may not think about.

We’re not saying you should walk down dark alleys alone or purposefully put yourself in harm’s way – but if you find yourself in a compromising situation and need to fight back, self defense is absolutely critical.

At our school self-defense is made up of three components- physical combat, mental awareness, and education on avoiding physical conflict in the first place.

Our students know how to de-escalate conflicts and avoid them, but if an altercation gets physical, again, it’s better to have self-defense and use it than to not have that training at all.

The mental elements and the physical elements of our martial arts classes combined help you maintain physical safety and psychological awareness of threats or dangers.

Keep Your Loved Ones Safe

P3, Active Jiu Jitsu Westchase TX

In this world, most parents want to make sure their kids know how to defend themselves.

Unfortunately, women are more likely to need to use self-defense training, so parents want to make sure their daughters especially know how to keep themselves safe.

It’s important to be able to keep yourself safe, but it’s another thing entirely to be able to keep the people you love safe too. It would be heartbreaking- and it’s happened before- to feel like you could have done more if someone you loved got attacked in your presence.

It’s also critical to pass down self-defense education to your children, partners, loved ones and community members so they can keep themselves and their family members safe if anything should happen when you’re not there to protect them.

That’s why we do what we do with our martial arts classes – to help educate the community and create an empowered population.

Learning self-defense for yourself will rub off on the people you care about, and you’ll all feel as safe and capable as possible in any situation you come across.

Become More Confident In Your Body

W4, Active Jiu Jitsu Westchase TX

Research has shown that self-defense classes help students feel more confident and capable in their bodies in public situations.

You’ll definitely feel more confident in your physique because our classes help you get fit fast, but it also means feeling safe and secure existing in a physical space where threats or attackers can come from anywhere at any time (again- you never know what will happen).

Plus, you’re breaking a sweat every class but in a way that is purposeful, so you feel even more accomplished after every class.

Training your body to a point of muscle memory in our martial arts classes is a wonderful exercise in self-discipline, and it’s such an accomplishment to look back on your progress and see how you’ve transformed.

This is especially true for our female students, who tend to feel better being in public after they’ve learned self-defense and its benefits.

Conclusion

Did we convince you self defense classes yet? 😉 It really is critical, and we do believe it’s one of the most important skills we can teach to our community. Hopefully, now you can understand that the best reasons to learn self-defense go beyond just physical safety. When you learn self-defense, you’re empowering yourself and those around you to live safer lives! Check out our life-saving Self Defense classes in Westchase right here at our school!
