- Crime can happen to anyone at anytime. Whether you want to live in your fantasy world or not, that is the harsh reality. At some point in your life as a woman you will flash across a predator’s (mainly male) radar as prey. You will be attacked. You will be alone and you will be vulnerable. And most likely, it will come from the one you least expected. The next question, what will you do?
- Be the role model for the next generation. We tell our daughters they can be anything they want. How about safe? How do we show them how to protect themselves against rape, incest, assault, domestic violence, etc, if we don’t set the example of being strong and standing up for ourselves by being able to defend ourselves – emotionally, verbally, physically and spiritually? If we continue to move in silence about the things that happen to us (rape, assault, emotional battering, domestic violence) how are we going to help our daughters become stronger and show our sons what is and is not acceptable behavior from a male?
- Become Empowered. I have watched countless women come into my classes as sheep and walk out as determined, strong, empowered women ready to take control of their own lives. A self defense course can’t empower you; but it can educate you in showing you the options who have to take control of your life and feel safer in your world.
- This is true LIFE Insurance. We spend money to ensure our cars, our life, our jewelry, disability insurance, travel insurance, our rental property, etc., but yet we hesitate when spending money on a self defense class that can truly SAVE our lives. Women’s self-defense classes have an incredible positive impact on their participants and greatly change lives for the better. Self defense classes provide you with real insurance to protect your life.
- Do it for those who count on you. If you won’t do it for yourself and the top 4 reasons, how about for those who count on you the most – your kids, spouse, parents, siblings, etc? What happens if you are now dead or incapacitated because of a crime? Who takes care of those that you took care of?
WHAT DO KIDS WANT IN A COACH??
We asked kids in an online survey: “What should a coach care about most?” You might expect them to answer “to focus on winning.” But “Put me in, coach!” is what most kids really want.
In fact, the majority didn’t think winning was all that important. Only 7% of girls said coaches should be most concerned with winning, while about 18% of boys said so.
Here’s what boys and girls value most in a coach:
64% said giving everyone a chance to play
27% said teaching new skills
9% said winning
Striving for excellence is a great goal, but when coaches and parents apply too much pressure, kids can get overly worried or push themselves too hard physically, leading to injuries. Some kids may even go on unhealthy diets to lose or gain weight to be better at their sport.
And when sports become too competitive, kids who have only average or below-average skills might spend too much time on the bench instead of learning new skills.
10th Degree master instructor Greg Silva says, “I have been a martial arts instructor for 46 years. I don’t believe there are better coaches than martial arts teachers.” Martial Arts instructors know that the door to success open “in” not “out”. That means the success to building an athlete who is well balanced yet understands that being in top shape and a top performer begins with the proper attitude, confidence, self esteem, sportsmanship and self control. This building from the “inside out” will prevent kids from being lazy, giving up, or quitting. The nature of martial arts with setting continuous goals is a key to it’s success. And there is no bench to sit on. All kids learn, train and compete while playing the “game” in every class they take.
