Precision Krav Maga offers an ongoing class that focuses on the self-defense concerns of women. This program is included as a membership benefit for women who are enrolled in our Krav Maga training program. This class gives our female students the opportunity to prepare for dealing with the safety risks facing women today. The all-female environment of the class also allows women to explore issues they may not feel comfortable addressing in a mixed gender setting. This class can be a great introduction to self defense for women who are uncertain about joining a regular martial arts program.
Many self-defense programs focus on the dangers that may arise from being attacked by a stranger on the street. While we train for that danger, we also help women prepare for the greater likelihood that an attack or sexual assault will come from someone the woman already knows. Statistically, women are most likely to be hurt by someone they already know and often the attack is coming from someone they care about. This often makes fighting off the attacker more difficult from an emotional level. We address dangers both from strangers as well as from people women know.
One of the main training goals of our program is to help women learn to deal with the fear and adrenal response that comes from an assault. We do this through drills conducted in a safe manner that are designed to simulate the way the body responds during a violent attack. This trains students to be ready to control those biological responses should they be faced with danger in the future, and also sometimes provides a therapeutic release for lingering stress and trauma from past experiences.
We are conveniently located for women living in Marietta, Roswell, Sandy Springs, Alpharetta, Woodstock, Kennesaw, and other communities in the greater Atlanta area. For more information about learning women’s self defense, please call (404) 850-2545 or fill out our online contact form.
