We are not teaching martial arts, why not ?
Lot of traditional martial arts depends on few factors like strength, fitness, starting from young age & flexibility.
Hence most of the Indian women do not feel fit enough, strong enough or young enough to take up self defense.
Physiologically from childhood, girls are taught to be nice all the time no matter how bad things are around them, just keep quite & take in all the abuse.
They are told that if they say no or resist the man by fighting who would be more angry and abuse & physically hurt them more.
Learning how to punch and kick is not effective enough to ward off any danger either from a stranger or someone you know, psychological preparation is the key for new mantra for survival any any street crimes.
Benefits of Power to Women Safety Awareness Workshop
Power to Women merges Israeli Krav Maga Self Defense tactics with Safety Awareness & Psychological Preparation Program especially designed keeping Indian women in mind with inputs from our psychologist Mrs. Ottilie Kumar.
As everything evolves in time, self defense given by traditional martial arts are still stuck in the stone age. It’s expects today’s women to be fitter and stronger like a man and ask them to adapt themselves into the rigid system of traditional martial arts.
Israeli self defense system is adapted from human reflex actions so its easy to learn. Practical Training would embedded the tactics into your muscle-memory (reflex actions) so you can still do your defense when your brain shuts down under violent stressfully attack. Psychological preparation & safety awareness theory session would make you more smarter to understand who, where and how these men might attack you verbally, emotionally, physically & sexually.
