Self Defense for Women

martial arts - young woman IMG_1589Our unique self defense is for women’s empowerment, toning and strengthening the muscles, creating strong tendons, increasing flexibility, balance and coordination, while learning self defense techniques. It includes Tai Chi and Qigong breathing and dynamic exercises. It is based on the principles of Neo Martial Arts, a non competitive martial arts.

This training is for women of all abilities, age 12 or more.

It is especially beneficial for women in their 50s and 60s to rejuvenate. It is not true that we are doomed to get older, become incapacitated, and we might as well just accept this. Our bodies are meant to move. If we haven’t moved in a while, well, of course, we loose strength, become stiff, uncoordinated.

With a little practice, we can reclaim our flexibility, coordination, strength, gently at first, gradually building up. And it is so much fun because as you are so focussed on doing the self defense techniques you forget that you are also training your body at the same time:)

We do not have to accept either that we will loose our mental powers of focus and concentration as we age. This too can be re-gained. Self defense is a fabulous way to do so.

Our body also releases endorphins as we train elevating our mood and making us happier.

Being active boosts our immune system. Virusses are around year long. Yet in winter we get sick because there are added stresses because of the cold weather, and the stresses of the holidays. Rather then being obsessed with avoiding viruses at all cost, a futile effort, I propose we focus on enhancing our immune system. Then the virusses will have little effect.

Mastering your body (being in charge of your body) brings so much self awareness and self confidence. It is empowers you to take care of all aspects of your life.

 

In loving synergy,
