Women’s Self Defense Program
A woman’s specific self defense program, created just for you. How does that sound? We’ve done just that. Reflex Jiu Jitsu is providing a special opportunity specifically for the female community in Danville, Pennsylvania. Some self defense programs are put together without women in mind, and some self defense programs are structured with women in mind but sadly fail to deliver.
After well over ten years practicing martial arts and attending some major schools across the country, I noticed this as a problem. When I started the process of building and opening Reflex Jiu Jitsu in Danville, I knew right away that I was going to provide the very best program in women’s self defense available.
Why was this so important to me?
First of all, worldwide, 1 in 3 women have experienced some type of violence, be it physical or sexual.
Personally, I find this completely unacceptable and together I feel as though we can beat these numbers. These aren’t the only numbers, check out the infographic below for some more disheartening statistics…
Now that you have the facts, here is exactly why our women’s self defense program can and will help you beat the statistics.
There are very specific ways that women experience violence as compared to men. That fact leaves no choice but to understand that there are then very precise ways to address those attacks. The good news is that there have been some studies that show women’s only self defense programs, just like the Empowerment Self Defense we are bringing to you, can decrease your chances of experiencing an assault of any kind.
Confidence is key
Taking into account that in most cases, attacks against women are committed by males who are much larger and physically stronger, the very first thing to address is the confidence to stand up to that attacker. It’s a fact that fighting back and standing strong are proven to greatly reduce the likelihood of an attack on you. Building confidence is easier than you think; all you need is the proper setting, instructors, workout partners, and a self defense program to help you build that real confidence you need to protect yourself mentally as well as physically.
The women’s self defense program at Reflex Jiu Jitsu gives you all of those things and more:
- Our learning environment is clean and safe.
- The instructors at Reflex are extremely qualified and professional.
- Women Only class structure assures you will feel comfortable and safe with your training partners.
- Our women’s self defense program provides a progressive curriculum of techniques that address violence against women specifically.
- You will learn situation specific verbal defense as well as the physical skill to properly defend yourself.
- There is no better martial arts system than Brazilian Jiu Jitsu for teaching women to overcome a bigger and stronger assailant. That is exactly why Brazilian Jiu Jitsu was created.
We have structured this class to teach you easily and progressively over a 4-month period, having classes just once a week. This allows you to get the most out of your self defense training without interfering with your busy personal schedule. At the end of the 4 months you can then choose to go through the course again, or step up to our slightly more advanced Adult Brazilian Jiu Jitsu program. This decision is entirely up to you and we would be more than happy to discuss your options with you after you finish the women’s self defense course.
You feel as though you will never experience a violent attack… and that might be true.
It is very true that not all women will experience any type of attack in their lifetime. An attack doesn’t always start or end up violent. There are many people who move forward with their attacks against women in a much more passive manner. Through our system we also address the act of asserting yourself to would be attackers. The overwhelming majority of sexual violence against women is committed by someone the woman already knows at some level. In the event that someone who is already an acquaintance of yours steps beyond his boundaries, you will be ready. That is guaranteed.
We want to provide you with as many resources as we can to help if you do experience this type of violation, so we put together a list of other local resources that offer support that you can check out here.
