The Crime Statistics is overwhelming against Women.
- Every 4 seconds a theft happens
- Every 19 seconds a violent crime happens
- Every 2.5 minutes a sexual assault occurs
- Every 5 minutes a woman is raped
- Every 24 minutes a Woman is murdered
It's unfortunate that Woman are too often victimized, but we cannot be ignorant and have the attitude that it will not happen to us. We as women need to equip ourselves with the skills to be able to defend ourselves if the occasion ever arises.
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is the best Martial Art to learn Self Defense because it focuses on ground grappling where 97% of fights or attacks end up. It is also designed for a smaller, weaker person to be able to control the situation with someone bigger and stronger.
I have been training Self Defense and Jiu Jitsu for over 5 years now and feel comfortable being uncomfortable. I pray I never have to use the skills I now have acquired but know that if I was ever attacked I would die fighting for my life instead of just allowing myself be a victim. When I first starting "training" I didn't understand why that word was used, but now I understand that every time I am on the mat, I am "training" to possibly save my life. In the beginning everything was so overwhelming and I had to think about step, and was not confident in my technique. Even in the safe environment of class I was panicked. Now I have trained so much it is like second nature. I see it in my life daily from even the simplest things like my footwork when I walk or being more aware of my surrounding always. No one deserves to be a victim, but it is our responsibility to equip ourselves with skills to defend ourselves if ever needed.
