Attacks on women are on the rise. Newspapers, magazines, and television carry countless reports on attacks on women almost every day. If you are a girl or a woman, you will feel scared of such incidents that are happening here and there. At first, you might think that you should remain cautious at all times. But, you will never be able to anticipate where such attacks might occur. Secondly, you might consider carrying stuff like pepper spray or small knives, but if you cannot properly use them, you will not be able to fend off the attacker. So, women need more fool-proof ways to guard themselves against such incidents.
Martial arts are the best options. Women can learn a variety of martial arts that will provide them with all the necessary skills not only to survive an attack but also to fight off the attackers. Most importantly, martial arts will inculcate in them the confidence that they are second to none when it comes to defending themselves.
So, let us take a look at the martial arts that are suited for women. Here are six effective martial arts for women:
Judo focuses on throws and submissions rather than strong punches or fast kicks. Instead of focussing on building your body, you can focus on how to pin your opponent to the ground.
It involves a close-range combat system. And it is effective for women as attacks on them are normally close-range.
It focuses on tactfully using the opponent’s force to bring him down instead of using your force.
Tae Kwon Do
It involves fast kicks as well as quick punches. It is especially suitable for women due to their relatively weak upper bodies.
Muay Thai makes use of elbows, knees, and the head, which are tougher than a fist.
Women should not delay anymore in attending martial arts classes to empower themselves in defending themselves.
