SUCCESS STORIES FROM MEMBERS
Awesome course, great to share it with so many other women. The Instructor really layered the learning well so that by the end, I felt like i had an arsenal and had the confidence to use it. I guess even though I’m not into fighting talk, in the context of women’s self defence, that’s a good thing.
This course is one of the most practical and sensible things you could ever do as a woman, to help enhance your safety. It’s three hours packed with not only practical, real-world actions that you can immediately use, but it gives you a much better understanding of how you’re psychologically and physiologically going to respond when under threat, and how you can deal with those issues. It gives you an introductory understanding of the basic elements of self-defence and personal safety, and is also a great intro session for those who might want to take self-defence further.
When I first started Hapkido in Oct 2015, the idea of attaining a black belt was daunting.
People from various areas of my life had stacked reasons against me:
– I’m too small/not athletically built.
– My joints won’t be able to handle the strain.
– I’m so busy with work and my Masters degree, I can’t commit the hours needed for martial arts success.
– I’m female so I will always lose against my male counterparts.
In short, there were plenty of non-martial artists telling me “NO!”.
Where people have told me “No”, I’ve told myself “Hell, why not?” and now I can say:
– Being small can be advantageous. Just gotta learn how to work it.
– Stronger muscles means better supported joints. My wrists, elbows, knees and back don’t hurt anywhere near as they did before.
– I get 24 hours in a day like everyone else. I make time for things I love or find important.
– Being female means I will be underestimated (but we all know better ). Good luck to any male (or female) that underestimates me!
Fast forward 2 years, I am so close to going for 1st Dan. Actually, I’m determined to get it in 2018.
