Womens Self Defense
There are many 'Womens Self Defense' classes these days, and that is certainly very important. The fact is however, that the techniques that are best for women, are best for everyone.
When I teach a self defense seminar designed for non-martial artists, I go by certain assumptions: .
The attacker is stronger and bigger than the Defender.
The Defender is not in the mood for a long kickboxing or wrestling or No Holds Barred match. He wants to get out of there quickly. .
The participants in my seminar are looking for simple, easy techniques.
This works for everyone.
So what would Men's self defense be? A lot of kicking to the head? Wrestling take-downs? That only works if you are Hulk Hogan or the Terminator. Any serious self defense instructor will tell you that in a real life situation you go with the simple stuff that does not rely upon great strength, i.e. what is taught in women's self defense classes.
The beauty of Krav Maga is that we employ these principles in ALL our training. We use techniques that are easy to learn, easy to apply in many diverse situations, and easy to remember, regardless if you are a soldier fighting a terrorist or a woman fighting an assailant.
