If all women knew how to self-defend themselves they could avoid dangerous situations. 

By giving you the confidence of defending yourself so that you are less afraid when facing those types of situations,” sheblurbs.wixsite.com said.

 “Nearly one in five women surveyed said they had been raped or had experienced an attempted rape at some point, and one in four reported having been beaten by an intimate partner,” www.nyctimes.com said.

Young girls like us shouldn’t have to take self-defense classes but the truth is, it’s the way to keep us safe from others who may be dangerous. 

Self Defense training could help a girl feel more confident and stronger in their body “By giving you the confidence of defending yourself so that you are less afraid when facing those types of situations.” sheblurbs.wixsite.com said.

Self-defense could give women the chance to defend themselves in dangerous situations, and make them less scared to live their daily lives.

Some may say that we should just “teach the men not to rape or beat”. However, if you tell a man not to rape, or beat then what would them stop or wanna do it more. There are also other benefits to taking self-defense for example you can protect yourself and others.  People need to see the importance of self-defense and how much it can affect their everyday lives.
