Lately social media has been fuming with the how women have been raped lately in Botswana. People from all walks of life since displayed displeasure at recent escalated number of ills. We have since figured it out that another alternative into helping curbing such ills as rape is to get women to learn self defense skills. Here are some of the top reasons why you (woman) should learn self defense skills.
1.Self-defense helps women protect themselves and their family. In my opinion, this is the most important reason for women to learn self-defense, because it is the difference between life and death. While men are touted as the stronger sex, jujitsu is a small man’s sport. Meaning, even though women are smaller and not as strong, this discipline helps women use their opponent’s mechanics against them, such as their height, weight, and even strength. In a self-defense situation, this is pivotal.
2. Self-defense builds confidence in women. Growing up, I had a very low self-esteem, and even self worth.
3. Self-defense teaches women discipline, and that discipline transfers over to all other areas of their lives.
