Ladies Self Defence

By Arakan Martial Art on February 1, 2015 in Self Defence | comments

In this day and age, the unfortunate truth is that it is necessary for all ladies to prepare themselves, and acquire the skills to defend themselves from would be attackers. Ladies self defence skills need to be taken on by both young and old, as crime does not discriminate.

Ladies self defence training needs to be practical, simple, highly effective, and applicable in a variety of real life situations and not necessarily in the context of a ring competition. This entails using your physical size and structure to your full advantage, maximizing your speed and power. You must also learn to use your attacker’s momentum against themselves together with highly effective strikes and deflections which works with momentum (rather than opposing strength) to ward off or incapacitate your attacker.

The style of self defense chosen must be provided by an experienced instructor, who is patient in teaching you the skills and passing on knowledge necessary for defend yourself. 

These skills need to be learnt, and developed on an ongoing basis, to be able to utilise the acquired skills in a self defence situation, a real investment in time and training must be made. 

A six week once off course (for example) may be a great way to begin your journey toward empowerment and teach you some basic skills. However in a real life pressure situation, only a serious investment in developing the knowledge, confidence and skills to defend yourself effectively may achieve the desired result.

The sad truth is that some ladies decide to take Self Defence lessons after a traumatic event. Prevention is better than cure, so please take the first step today ladies, and prepare, and empower yourselves with the confidence and skills to effectively protect yourself.






Not long before I started training in Arakan Martial Art I was held up in a pharmacy. I realised then that I had absolutely no idea of how to deal with this type of situation. Arakan is helping me to explore and develop another side to myself and I love the fact that if I ever felt threatened I might now have some idea of what to do. Starting Arakan is probably the best decision I have ever made.

Being in the Moment

Contrary to what many people think, a long term disciplined practice in martial arts can help you become more tolerant, calm and peaceful, rather than aggressive. 
Many people avoid training in a martial art because they’re “not a violent person”,  in fact, it’s a misconception that martial arts equates to violence.  This misconception actually robs people of a martial arts journey as well as the massive array of benefits that form part of that journey.

Time - the key to success

In todays’ society we expect so much so quickly. There is always so much pressure on ourselves and people around us to gain immediate results, no matter what the venture maybe. 

Our concept of time has changed dramatically; I often hear comments such as, “I have been training for so long now, it’s been almost three years,” and “I have given myself three months to see if my new business can make big profits,” and “it’s time to find a new job, I have been in this same job for two years, it’s been too long.”

Malcolm Gladwell, in his book Outliers states that it takes 10,000 hours for someone to master a topic...
