Self Defense tips for Women

Self Defense has been always essential at any era to save oneself. To train in Martial arts are the best way to learn to defend oneself. But what and how to train? What to train is very important. Women do join short term courses and after learning few moves and tricks feel that they are able to defend one. Having faith on moves and tricks shall never lead you to defend yourself and it is just going to give you an idea how to save. Without proper training is like going in battle with guns but no bullets.

We have come upon to the following facts which everyone should work upon for self defense.

1. Keep yourself physically fit.
2. Analyze your own weaknesses and work upon to eliminate it.
3. Learn martial arts skills thoroughly and apply practically in training. Remember the way you train the way you will fight. (Only learning is not enough but applying it).
4. Learn the additional methods of avoiding confrontation (Highest martial arts skills are to win a battle without using martial arts).
5. Believe and trust in one-self. (It will only come if you are able and strong).
