Although we don’t like to think about it, violence is an unfortunate fact of life.
Effective self-defense is about agility, attitude, and awareness – three components that reinforce each other.
The stronger and more fit you are, and the quicker your reaction time, the more confident you are that you can react swiftly and creatively to threats – throwing a punch, aiming a kick, running away, or doing whatever it takes.
Confidence generates a “hands-off” attitude that can discourage would-be attackers.
The discipline and focus you develop while getting and staying in shape make you more alert, aware of activity in your immediate environment. That awareness increases your responsiveness to sudden moves, odd sounds, and other “danger cues” that require decisive action.
Disciplines such as tae kwon do and kickboxing teach excellent skills such as kicking and punching that can be applied to staying safe day-to-day.
Self-defense classes focus specifically on practical, simple moves to stave off attacks.
But whatever fitness activity you pursue, take time to think about the practical applications of the coordination, muscle strength and self-esteem you’re gaining.
Remember: ability, attitude and awareness can spell the difference between being a victim and becoming a criminal’s worst nightmare.
Not a hard choice to make.
