Everyone talks about sports and the benefits it has on our overall physical fitness. Many doctors advice us to join some fitness or sports activity to stay fit, and those interested in sports usually end up joining the popular sports, but very few people learn karate, taikwando, Jiu Jitsu as a sport for self defence.
What is Self Defence ?
Self defence is when someone fights back to protect oneself or family from potential threat. As Jeff Cooper said “The one who fights back retains his dignity and his self respect”
Today more than ever with so many crimes happening all around ,learning one of the self defence technique from a personal protection coach is a good way of protecting ourselves from harm.
Generally men are better equipped at self defence due to better physical strength than women, yet its better to master the skill irrespective of gender.
Today young girls are at a higher risk of being attacked, simply as crime rates have gone up.
In developing countries like India more women are being raped or assaulted or physically abused and more such crimes are coming to light.

With such dastardly acts ,women not only in India and developing countries but other countries too need to learn Jiu Jitsu or other self defence or personal protection sport and get empowered.
