Want to be prepared to defend yourself?

Everyone runs into conflict at some point. The best way to prevent or resolve it is to be prepared! Martial arts provides skills that can help you work through conflict and defend yourself.

  • Observational Skills - Martial arts requires intense focus and has us perform precise, intricate movements. When you’re focused, you may observe small changes in social cues or body language that can help you predict and avoid conflict.
  • Self-Control - The discipline you learn during training can be used to control yourself. During a conflict, one of the worst things you can do is let your emotions or impulses get the best of you. Using self-control to remain calm can stop the situation from escalating.
  • Confidence - Martial arts can improve your confidence and help you realize that you are capable of doing hard or uncomfortable things, like dealing with conflict. Entering a conflict with confidence can help you handle the situation more and help control the outcome.
  • Self-Defense - When absolutely necessary, training in judo, jujutsu, or karate can help you defend yourself.
