WHY CHILDREN SHOULD TAKE MARTIAL ARTS

WHY CHILDREN SHOULD TAKE MARTIAL ARTS | Self Protection | Scoop.it

"Some people worry that teaching martial arts will foster a sense of violence and give bullies the skills they need to continue harming others. Martial arts do the opposite. A common characteristic of bullies is that they lack impulse control and also don’t know how to manage their anger. Martial arts can solve that because it helps reduce stress, it improves concentration and control and it teaches respect of others. In this sense, it also helps children who are bullied because it gives them the confidence they need to combat bullying before it starts."

Threat Recognition Trainer | Instinctive Systems | Self Protection | Scoop.it

There are 5 phases in self defense, and physical self defense is just one of them. The TRT (Threat Recognition Trainer) is designed to help you become aware of PINs (Pre-Incident Indicators), so that you can prevent a violent incident altogether. Unlike physical self defense, it is quite possible to learn about spotting and avoiding danger in the comfort of your own home.
