Women Learn Self Defence

In a crime inflicted environment of today, gender violence is increasing and many cases go unreported. In view of this, self-defence has become the need of the hour for women to help them protect their dignity and safety. Studies have shown that men are less willing to attack those women who fight physically.

By learning self defence techniques, women make themselves better prepared to tackle any situation. The techniques enable women to fight back and save themselves. Relatively little strength is required to use the techniques that are taught.

To all women out there - your body is more capable than you think and your resolve is stronger than you believe. So, do not feel restricted, but defend yourself and your loved ones.

Organisations working for protection of women conduct short-term self-defence training programmes in various cities and girls and women are urged to take advantage of the same. Some of these NGOs and organisations are listed in 'Resources' section below.
