1. What is self-defense?
Self-defense is a set of awareness, assertiveness, verbal confrontation skills with safety strategies and physical techniques that enable someone to successfully escape, resist and survive violent attacks. A good self-defense course provides psychological awareness and verbal skills, not just physical training.
2. Does self-defense work?
Yes. Self-Defense training can increase your options and help you prepare responses to slow down, deescalate, or interrupt an attack. Like any tool, the more you know about it, the more informed you are to make a decision and to use it.
