Self-Defense Lessons in Gilbert, AZ
Self-defense classes are derived from martial arts dating back to the Orient over many centuries. Those most often looking to learn self-defense are women, children, teenagers, and professionals, such as law enforcement and security workers seeking job advancement. There are countless reasons for wanting to be able to defend oneself. For example, many women want to learn self-defense in case they are ever attacked; young children have been turning to self-defense to help put an end to being tormented by a bully; and others are simply looking for a fun way to get some exercise in. It’s not a secret that the health benefits associated with this type of cardiovascular exercise are superb and it is great for the lungs, heart, and building muscle mass. Being a self-defense practitioner has historically had a positive influence on at-risk youth, helping to teach them discipline, honor, and respect for their parents.
