It's not a gun, and it's not a knife. Statistics have shown again and again in an attack situation, any weapon is more likely to be turned against you than benefit you in defense. So what are the best weapons for defending yourself and your family? The answer is: Your Body and Mind.

In the society we live in, it's an unfortunate fact that dangerous situations crop up all the time. Do you go to bars with your friends? Bars are dangerous hotpots of alcohol and testosterone that can easily boil over into fights and attacks. Do you walk at night, or live in a high crime area? These are just more factors that can lead to situations that can and do turn bad in the blink of an eye.

When you learn self defense techniques, you will not only learn how to defend yourself using your hands, body and feet against an attacker, you will also learn how to identify dangerous situations and react accordingly, giving you the best chance of coming out of it unscathed or with minimal injury, and with your attacker the one worse for wear.

Learning self defense can also benefit you in many other ways. Enjoy the confidence from knowing you can deal with a dangerous or deadly situation and protect yourself or others from harm.

This confidence will overflow into other areas of your life, such as your work, your communication skills and your day to day life. As well as self-esteem boost, you'll enjoy increased fitness, a sharper mind and an increased awareness in the world around you. And in addition to all that, self defense is fun and interesting to learn, as many methods have distilled techniques from martial arts, boxing and street fighting into an effective system that is easy to learn and implement.
