Description

Why Attend Self-Defence?

Self-defense means a countermeasure in order to protect oneself from harm and defend your health and well-being.

Self-defense classes are getting very popular nowadays. In fact, such classes are part of the curriculum at many schools and colleges, where they teach a mix of physical skills and life lessons.

Learning how to defend yourself will do far more than just keep you safe. It will give you the skills, knowledge and confidence to live your life to the fullest and in a safe manner.

“If you are in a situation where you need to protect yourself, jiu jitsu is how you protect yourself,” he said, noting that potential adversaries will have weapons, they will be on drugs or suffer from some psychotic condition. “If you want to protect yourself, jiu jitsu is how you do it.” - Navy SEAL expert, Joko Willilink

Willink recommends Brazilian jujitsu, followed by Western boxing, Muay Thai, and wrestling (the type you see in the Olympics, not the WWE – no disrespect to the WWE).

Willinck is a proponent of jujitsu in particular – recounting how he used it to beat a fellow SEAL in a sparring match who had 20 years of experience in a different martial art.

He noted that people should not buy into the notion of a “magical instructor” who can help them defeat multiple attackers. He also noted that you have more time than you think when you do self-defense classes. The attack isn’t likely to happen next week – it could be a lot longer, and one can learn a lot by training in a martial art two or three times a week for six months.

Willick notes, though, that martial arts have a purpose beyond self-defense. They can teach discipline and humility. He notes that few who start jujitsu get a black belt – because it takes discipline to go out there on the mat constantly, especially when you are a beginner.
