"The Women's Social and Political Union responded by creating a 30 member, all female protection unit to protect the suffragettes from being re-arrested and suffer abuse. The unit was often referred to as "The Bodyguard" or "The Jiujitsuffragettes.""

Karen Bowden's insight:

Fortunately, today women need not protect themselves in order to gain the right to vote.

"For some people, the fear of crime has led them to live a very secluded, paranoid and non-fulfilling life. For others, the perceived ineffectiveness of the government and police force to combat crime has left them with a lot of built-up frustrations and a feeling of helplessness."

Why Are the Martial Arts so Great for People with Disabilities?

Why Are the Martial Arts so Great for People with Disabilities? | Self Protection | Scoop.it

"As a parent of a child diagnosed on the Autism spectrum, I can relate in a different way and on a difference scale to those people looking for activities to get their child involved with that won’t cause them to feel ostracized, not able to keep up with peers, or like they are frustrating the instructors. Will little Johnny be made fun of? Will he be too much of a distraction for the others in the activity? Will Jane feel too badly about herself if she can’t do what the others can and keep up in the same way? Yep, I have asked myself the same questions as I considered what I could do to help my child become a more well rounded, self confident, positive contributing member of society. And, whether you or your child have physical, emotional, or mental disabilities, all can feel the discomfort associated with self doubt and putting one’s self or someone you love in harms way. The disability is hard enough to contend with, adding the stress of how others react to it can also, at times, do its own damage."

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."
