Self-defense... More than just hitting back!

Although learning how to defend ourselves physically is important, our capacity to keep ourselves safe begins within, through our ability to confidently assert ourselves in all circumstances, define and enforce our limits respectfully yet firmly, be aware of potential dangers in order to avoid them, and to stand strong and be true to ourselves, always.

That is Self-Empowerment.

Why Self-Defense is so important...  

We know how physical self-defense can seem aggressive--most of us don't want to be violent at all and forcing ourselves into someone's space and hitting them back, even though justified, goes against everything we believe in...  However, the strength and confidence self-defense gives us is unparalled in the prevention of violence...

Consider the following... 

Studies show that by fighting back

verbally and/or physically, we are up to 91% more likely to avoid experiencing sexual assault...

We develop ferocity, not aggression...

              • It is about giving ourselves the tools to resolutely keep us and those we love safe
              • The more experience we have, the more confidence we have in our skills
              • That confidence projects as strength, the number one deterrent to violence
              • Knowing we can respond, and have choices as to how we respond, is what brings us peaceful calm and awareness in our every day lives

Femme qui défend (efficacement?) son cellulaire!

Un de mes clips préférés, une jeune femme sur son cell se le fait piquer. Elle réagit promptement, contre-attaque avec férocité et détermination, met le voleur au sol et récupère son cell... Elle est absolument géniale par ailleurs, certaines attentions doivent être portées...
