Self defense has become a hot button in today’s world as there has been an increase of violence across the country. There has been a number of shootings, protests, and robberies as Covid-19 has caused a fair amount of people to lose jobs and income. Personal protection has become increasingly important. A number of people have had situations in which they have had to defend their property and families. America has become a hostile environment with a variety of factors influencing behavior such as the election, Covid-19, loss of job and/or income, and home schooling. There has been a surge in the number of firearm purchases across the country.
There is much more involved to self defense than just learning a few techniques to get yourself out of a bad situation. Most self defense classes focus only on specific techniques and not the total package. Situational awareness is a huge part of self defense because you may be able to avoid the situation all together. An individual should also know what the brain goes through during such a traumatic event. We make sure to discuss these things in our classes as well as what the law says in reference to self defense. There are non-lethal items that a person can carry and use if need be in such situations.
When searching for a self defense class make sure you research the business and it’s reviews. You should ask what will be covered in the class material and see if it is relevant to what you are looking for. There are a lot of options out there for the consumer, make sure you pick what is best for you.
