The greatest benefit of our self-defence for women training programme

Have you ever noticed how people often see fighting skills as the sole benefit of female self-defence training?

Obviously, knowing how to protect yourself is a big thing. It's like car insurance, you don't want to use it but it's good to have it. Just in case.

And it can make a clear difference.

Self-defence is also about prevention, learning how to set boundaries, assert yourself and safely de-escalate situations.

The system I teach, Urban Krav Maga, has been designed to work regardless of age, gender, athletic attributes or body type. It's based on quick reactions and swift movements.

Techniques are built upon the body's natural instincts and are easy to assimilate. Simple yet functional.

"I've tried a few classes relating to defence and martial arts, but this is the first time I've come across something good...I felt very comfortable as a beginner in the class, and came away feeling like I had learnt something, which is rare from a first session!" Kelly - London SE4

This being said, technical development should always be supported by a suitable conditioning programme.

My objective is also to help you get stronger, faster, tougher.

No military training though; just smart training!

High Intensity Interval Training protocols like the one I use, are known to kick metabolic rate into hyper-drive for hours after the session is finished, so you will enjoy an incredible boost of energy and burn a huge amount of calories.

Between the drills themselves, the punching, the kicking and the conditioning, you are guaranteed one hell of a workout.

"...Over the past 5 months I have got so much fitter and my performance in other sports and fitness classes has improved (I have gone from near the bottom to near the top of other class I do which is not bad for someone who always got D4 in their PE reports at school!)" Rachel - London SE24

We all live fast pace hectic urban lives that come with their share of stress and we regularly need to let off steam.

Pounding a kicking shield and getting into a friendly brawl on the ground will undoubtedly extract any stress out of your body and mind.

In the grand scheme of things, however, the main benefit you'll get from the class is self-confidence.

You'll realise you're stronger than you think.

You'll realise that, with a bit of training, you can efficiently defend yourself and take a guy down.

"'s surprisingly satisfying to see how much leverage you can (literally) have over a big guy if you make the right move at the right time" Suzanne - London SE22

One of my students told me she felt a sense "freedom" knowing she could properly respond to physical aggression.

As a result of the training and your getting familiar with adrenaline and physical action, you'll be calmer in the face of adversity.

You'll feel more comfortable and confident dealing with aggressive behaviour and the way you interact with other people will change positively.

Self-defence training for women is empowering.
