Northern Kentucky Self Defense
Scary numbers! Even more scary to me when I know that with just a small amount of knowledge these numbers could be changed. Knowledge is power!
We took a self defense class last week with a small group of teens and moms. The class we signed up for was offered by Northern Kentucky Self Defense:
Northern Kentucky Self Defense teaches practical self defense methods that provides participants with easy to use self defense techniques that require little to no strength in order to help them get away from an attacker. These techniques give one the tools to protect oneself in any situation from violent crime to assault of any kind.
Not only was the class informative, we each were challenged to try the skills being taught. Once the girls got over being shy about “screaming at someone” and “hitting something”, they had a blast!
The basic escape moves taught involved using mind over strength. I was blown away by the skills taught, which combined with a focused mindset…make escaping the grasp of an attacker possible! Since most women would not be able to overpower a male attacker, they have to think differently. This different mindset, coupled with a little training can make a difference in being a victim or getting away.
The instructor had such a passion for teaching women to protect themselves. Her passion came through in her attention to the students and in making sure even the shyest in the group was equipped with the knowledge that could one day make all the difference in their lives.
If you are interested in taking a class, contact Northern Kentucky Self Defense for a class schedule or connections to a local instructor in your area. Classes are scheduled both at a local studio in Florence or the instructor will come to your location.
What a wonderful topic for a ladies day or club activity. Take the time to learn a few moves that can tip the scales to your side in a confrontation.
