Self defense is not just about fighting off would be assailants but about assessing all situations and responding appropriately. If we see trouble close by we have choices - we can avoid the area and not put ourselves in the midst of a confrontation or we can very often calm the situation using logic and showing confidence in oneself. What the Swift Current Karate Club does is prepare a person physically and mentally with the tools they need to protect themselves, when and if they are ever needed.
When the adrenaline is pumping it can be very hard to think clearly. This is the primary focus we have when teaching. We are going to teach you something that you hopefully will never have to use, but if you do, then we want you be able to pull out this new skill set with ease. That is why we created a course specifically to prepare you in case of an assault.
Swift Current Karate Club has designed its self-defense course by boiling down different martial arts techniques into their key components. These components are then connected with specific situations so that you gain the necessary knowledge to handle almost any circumstance. Our goal is that when situation X arises, you will counter with Y.
Meet new people
Self-defense is a serious subject but this is not the army, it is a classroom and we try to have fun while learning. Even the strongest building can’t stand on a weak foundation. That is why we support each other in class; to create a solid foundation for our students to stand upon. Come and meet likeminded individuals, engage with other members of your community, and have some fun. If you have any questions about the self-defense classes we provided the people of Swift Current then please feel free to contact us.
